‘The Missing Middle’ – Children and Young People with Moderate to Severe Mental Health Concerns

Between 2021-22, the Youth Coalition partnered with the Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing, and Capital Health Network, to undertake research to better understand ‘the missing middle’. This research engaged with stakeholders across public, private and community sectors to better understand which cohorts of children and young people experience difficulties accessing mental health services, and the underpinning service and system challenges and constraints. The report was released in 2022 by the ACT Government and has since informed a range of policy initiatives.
