Supporting young people with a mental illness in their transition from education into the workplace: Literature Review 2013

Client:  National Mental Health Commission

Since 2012, the National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) has produced an annual Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. In the 2013 Report Card, the chapter Something Meaningful To Do, Something To Look Forward To has the topic "Transitioning from education to independence". The WRC partnered with the Brain & Mind Research Institute (BMRI) to consult experts and conduct a literature review to explore this topic, which focuses on the issues of young people with a mental illness in their transition from education into the workplace. The research looked at the support available and challenges that need to be addressed across the education journey and the transition into employment.
