Doctors can help stressed students

Youth so anxious they 'can't hand in work, are losing sleep, missing classes', says GP

As school children around Australia head back to the classroom this week, a Queensland GP is stressing the importance of supporting students with anxiety, even if it means providing a sick note to postpone exams.

Dr Rob Park says he sees a few anxious students every week in his Buderim practice on the Sunshine Coast, as well as others he works with through Headspace.
