Overview of MindMatters, Katherine School Region
Partnering with COGSO (Council Of Government School Organisations) and the Department of Education, this overview session assists in providing a deeper understanding of the MindMatters framework, its underpinning mental health concepts and what it can mean for various roles within the school.
It focuses on the synergies between MindMatters and the work that education, health and community agencies are already doing with schools. It highlights how education, health and community personnel can potentially provide support to schools to effectively implement strategies under KidsMatter that promote children’s mental health. Brief information on the MindMatters implementation process and the target areas within the four components will be provided.
