Event description

Description

One in seven young people aged between four and 17 has experienced a mental health issue in the past 12 months. Children spend around 30 hours at schools or in care each week, so educators are confronted with these issues every day.

Be You is a major new Beyond Blue initiative designed to address mental health in schools and early learning services. Developed by Beyond Blue in partnership with delivery partners Early Childhood Australia and headspace, Be You is available for free to all early learning services, primary and secondary schools in Australia.

At its heart, Be You is online training and resources, backed by 70 expert staff on the ground, to support busy principals, teachers and early learning professionals. Educators can claim completion of Be You learning modules towards their professional development.

Funded by the Australian Government, Be You makes it easier for educators to nurture the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Be You will bring together educators, parents, support staff and students themselves to develop and roll out action plans tailored to the needs of each school or early learning service. Be You will also help secondary schools know how to respond in the tragic event of a suicide, and where they can turn for support.

This information session will be led by a Be You Consultant, with opportunities throughout to ask questions. The session is suitable for all educators (early learning, primary and secondary) interested in finding out more about Be You.
