Mental health of Aus youths improve after Covid lockdowns end

Canberra, Sep 15 (SocialNews.XYZ) The mental health and well-being of young Australians has improved following the end of Covid-19 lockdowns, a national survey revealed on Thursday.

Australian National University researchers published their latest Covid-19 Impact Monitoring Survey of more than 3,500 respondents, finding lower levels of psychological distress compared to 2021, reports Xinhua news agency.

 

More than two-thirds of respondents aged 18-24 -- the age group that lost the most life satisfaction during the pandemic -- reported their lives were better than 12 months ago.

"That does not mean that Australia has returned to pre-pandemic levels of well-being and mental health," study co-author Nicholas Biddle said in a media release, adding that life satisfaction was lower in August 2022 than it was in October 2019.

So far, the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic has surpassed 10 million in Australia, the population of which is about 25 million.
