Mental health impacts of school to work transitions among young people with disabilities
The transition between school and work represents both an exciting and challenging time in a young person’s life. For young people with disability and experiencing disadvantage, however, this transition may be more challenging and may be associated with inequalities in mental health. This PhD will explore the circumstances surrounding this transition period, and how they are associated with the mental health of young people with disabilities.
This PhD is part of our YES study, an NHMRC Partnership Project on Youth Employment in Australia.
