Child and adolescent mental health problems are an important public health problem nationally. According to the Young Minds Matter survey undertaken in 2013-2014, 1 in 7 young people aged 4-17 years met the clinical criteria for 1 or more mental disorders in the previous year.

In addition, 1 in 6 children are developmentally vulnerable in Queensland, with identified prevalence of children with behavioural issues, learning difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

This network is designed to support local providers in effective behaviour and mental health management in children and young people with the added aim to minimise the risk of these problems persisting into adulthood.
