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 Spotlights

MindMatters’ Spotlight series takes an in-depth look at topics of importance to schools, including Bullying, Using technology, Suicide prevention and Self-harm, as well as Staff wellbeing and Engaging families. The Spotlight series is an engaging collection of evidence-based resources including animations, expert panel discussions, downloadable resources and links to useful websites.

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.
