First symptoms of depression often occur during teenage years, and it can be a disturbing and confusing time for families as well as the teenager themselves. How can you tell whether it's just typical teenage ups and downs that will pass, or something more serious? How can we reliably identify and support teenagers with depression?

Care for Australia's children and elderly is provided in a mixed economy, in which for-profit providers are playing an increasingly important role alongside more traditional government and non-government organisations. Does the growth of for-profit provision affect the quality of services or of jobs in paid care? Does it change the political dynamics of the social care sector in contemporary welfare states? How might service users, their families, and organisations work together to sustain and improve the quality of care services? What theories and evidence help us to understand the process and consequences of the shift toward for-profit provision of social care? In nine chapters by leading researchers, this book explores these and other questions, to inform policy and practice in this key field of social policy.

One of the reports from the Brotherhood of St Laurence 1st Youth Unemployment Monitor for 2015 describes how the dreams of Australia’s unemployed youth are being shattered as the nation’s unemployment rate overall climbs. More than 290,000 Australians aged 15 to 24 were categorised as unemployed in January. Worst hit were the 15 to 19-year-olds, with the unemployment rate for this group hitting 20 per cent – a level not seen since the mid-1990s. see more
The paper examines these issues in the context of the agenda to prevent violence against women and children. It examines conceptual understandings of violence against women, and argues that we need to broaden the current way of thinking about how we frame what violence against women encompasses. It highlights the critical need to understand and respect the complexity and specificity of gendered disability violence. In positioning violence against women as a form of discrimination, this paper recognises the multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination that combine to significantly heighten the risk and likelihood of women and girls with disabilities experiencing gendered disability violence. In so doing, it reflects an understanding that violence against women, as a form of discrimination, is not just a matter of ‘intergender inequality’ between women and men, but also a matter of ‘intragender inequality’ among women.

A poll measuring Australian school students’ levels of hope, wellbeing and engagement shows that students’ level of enthusiasm for school wanes as they progress into the higher grades, and only one-third of respondents believe that they will get a good job.
The Gallup Student Poll was conducted among 7,300 students in years five to 12 across Australia in September last year. See more
Some 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices and exposure to damaging levels of sound at noisy entertainment venues, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Data from studies in middle- and high-income countries analysed by WHO indicate that nearly 50% of 12–35-year-olds are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from the use of personal audio devices and around 40% are exposed to potentially damaging levels of sound at entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events.
Ahead of International Ear Care Day on 3 March, the WHO has launched a Make Listening Safe initiative to draw attention to the dangers of unsafe listening and promote safer practices. See more
