Is the decline in young people’s mental health in developed countries only seen in the post-millennial cohort, and does it recover with age, or is it a more permanent and worrying trend?

A study led by University of Sydney tracked the mental health of a cohort of Australians for 20 years in hopes of answering this question, and the results reveal that it’s not only Gen-Z but also earlier generations heading into their 40s and 50s that are experiencing a decline in mental health since 2010.

As Sydney braces for 40-degree temperatures this weekend, how hot is too hot?

New research led by University of Sydney and Arizona State University says the current 35-degree wet-bulb temperature limit recommended for human survival doesn’t consider how we live and work in the heat.

“Heat affects each person differently depending on individual factors. We know some people are much more vulnerable than others.” - Professor Ollie Jay, Heat and Health Research Incubator.

Researchers propose a new approach that considers age, humidity, activity level and sun exposure to provide a safe temperature range.
