Headspace community awareness and engagement officer Chadd Simson said they heard from many young people that they’re feeling busy, stressed and anxious just about everyday life.

“What we listened to, was the fact that young people face a unique set of kind of life transitions and challenges,” Mr Simson said.

“It can sometimes make life feel challenging and the challenges that are leaving some people feeling as though their lives are quite unbalanced.

“So essentially, the theme pause, reflect, reconnect, is trying to remind not just young people, but everyone in Australia, young people, their families, whoever, that it can be helpful to slow down and just take the time to do something for your health and well being.”
