Tarneit students pushed for mental health confidentiality in midst of lockdown

After extended lockdowns, Tarneit Senior College students are advocating for greater mental health confidentiality.

Kushi Parikh, Lorrisjunior Pati, Namagembe Mwakasungura, Hazel Dua, Naufal Juman and Angad Randhawa created the Lowering the Age of Mental Health Confidentiality Bill for this year’s YMCA Victorian Youth Parliament.

The Bill calls to lower the age of mental health confidentiality from 18 to 16 years of age, in an attempt ‘to create better conversation and higher trust between young people and mental health practitioners’.
