This report looks into the types of impact experienced by young people during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the particular groups of young people who have faced more challenges. The report also details how the experience of different and multiple impacts relate to increases in stress, loneliness and psychological distress, as well as decreases in feelings of control, happiness and mental health and wellbeing.

This partnership between Orygen and Mission Australia has helped to build on findings and identify potential implications for policy and practice focusing on mental health, education and employment approaches, research and housing. These are detailed in this report, highlighting the need to make concerted and continued efforts to support this generation in recovering from the disruptions and challenges faced as a consequence of the pandemic.
