The biggest cause of death for young Australians is suicide. Youth mentoring organisations are calling out for intergenerational mentors to address the concerns of young people before it gets too late.

72-year-old Mary Martin was a midwife and a nurse before she retired in Sydney.

Having worked with children and adolescents most of her life, Martin thought she had a good idea about teenagers. However, through mentoring high school students with not-for-profit organisation Raise, she’s learnt that there are unique issues faced by today’s youth.
