• Make school mental health a priority in 2015

    Since every school is different, MindMatters provides a flexible framework rather than a one-size-fits-all solution. This means you take from it what’s right for your school and design a mental health strategy.

What is MindMatters

What is MindMatters?

MindMatters is a mental health initiative for secondary schools that aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people. We call it a ‘framework’, in that it provides structure, guidance and support while enabling schools to build their own mental health strategy to suit their unique circumstances. MindMatters provides school staff with blended professional learning that includes online resources, face-to-face events, webinars and support.


MindMatters for all school staff

MindMatters’ professional learning and online resources provide benefits for all school staff:

  • School leaders will appreciate improved academic results, fewer behavioural issues, better student and staff retention, and positive word of mouth about the school.
  • Wellbeing staff will amplify their mental health and wellbeing efforts by getting the whole school working together.
  • School staff will be empowered with the skills and confidence to support the mental health of students and to help build a positive school environment.

Mental health is a key foundation of school success.
