MEMBERS STATEMENT – PARENT MENTAL HEALTH.

Tuesday, 10 November 2020.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (13.46):

Parents are doing it tough.

A Melbourne Institute and University of Melbourne study found that Victorian parents have suffered a spike in mental and financial stress.

Mental distress has exploded, rising from 7 per cent to almost one in five, 18 per cent.

The report also found a quarter of working parents who have a child aged between five and 11 are currently experiencing high mental distress.
