Changing it up: supporting young people to navigate life transitions

Young people are required to navigate many changes throughout their lives, such as finding full-time employment, making new friends and moving out of home. These transitions are often connected, leading to change across many life domains. While transitions can be rewarding, they can also represent challenging and difficult times with long-term impacts.

Although mental health and youth strategies acknowledge that young people navigating transitions require targeted support, there is little understanding about the frequency and impact of transitions, and the support required to navigate change. This policy report identifies the opportunities available to prevent or minimise distress for young people during times of change.
