Component framework

The MindMatters mental health framework is built around four key components:

C1 Positive school community
C2 Student skills for resilience
C3 Parents and families
C4 Support for students experiencing mental health difficulties

Together these components provide a holistic and comprehensive view of student mental health and wellbeing within the wider school community.

Each component is explored through a number of stand-alone online modules covering different topics. These modules include animation, video, interactive tools and downloadable resources and take around one hour to complete. Each module has a facilitator guide and can be explored individually or in a group. Special face-to-face events and experienced support from Principals Australia Institute project officers complement the online resources and help schools to implement what they have learnt.
