Study stress for young people is increasing, and maybe you’ve noticed this playing out for your young person. Research shows that young people struggle to balance the pressures of studying alongside other areas like work, family, health and social life.
Young people today face many challenges. Between the cost of living crisis, post-pandemic stress and overrepresentation in the casual workforce – there’s a tonne of pressure to handle. Throw a demanding study schedule on top of that, and you have a recipe for stress.
Many of these stressors are outside our control, and as a parent, it can be hard to know how to support your young adult through their academic life. So, we’ve got some practical tips, resources and support options to share with you all.
Study stress is different for everyone, and it’s worth reflecting on your young person's unique circumstances to understand better what type of support can help them get through their studies.
Support options are available if you notice your teen is experiencing study stress.

We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
