LELAN's Executive Director, Ellie Hodges, spoke with the Advertiser about the mental health of young people. This was in response to the youth survey report released by Mission Australia and the Black Dog Institute. 


Ellie Hodges, from LELAN, said the report laid bare the gaps that have existed for some time in how we as a community understand and respond to young people’s distress. Peer connections are vital for young people, and it is these that have been impacted most greatly by the pandemic, even in South Australia.
