New Support for Mental Health in Schools from Federal Government

New Support for Mental Health in Schools from Federal Government
Today, Beyond Blue is officially launching the National Education Initiative Be You, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. We are excited that the next important step in supporting the mental health and social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people is about to begin.

With the support of our delivery partners Early Childhood Australia and headspace, Be You will empower every Australian educator from early learning to primary and secondary school as well as our next generation of teachers to foster the mental health of those in their care and to look after their own wellbeing.

For the first time, Be You brings together, and builds on the success of, five established Australian programs to create one national, integrated framework designed to support the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people across every Australian learning community.

We're thankful for the contribution to the development of Be You from many stakeholders nationwide, and we look forward to the involvement of your organisation and others. This is an opportunity to make sure every educator across Australia knows there is support available. To that end, we have prepared a fact sheet and frequently asked questions for your information.

I also encourage you to have a look at Be You for yourself at beyou.edu.au.

Please also let us know if have any questions or feedback on the launch phase of Be You. Be You will be continuously improved and added to as we gather feedback and move into future phases. We will continue to keep you informed as the initiative rolls out.

Yours sincerely

Georgie Harman
Chief Executive Officer
