KidsMatter has evolved into the new initiative—Be You.

Be You launched November 1, 2018 and is being delivered by Beyond Blue, Early Childhood Australia and headspace. Be You is the Federal Government’s renewed and expanded investment in children's mental health and wellbeing, covering the early years through school and up to the age of 18.

The initiative builds on ECA’s 10 years working with Beyond Blue to deliver KidsMatter Early Childhood. If you're already participating you will transition seamlessly to Be You. If not you can join us when you visit the Be You website:

KidsMatter's history of growing healthy minds

As a mental health and wellbeing initiative for children, KidsMatter Early Childhood worked with early childhood education and care services to support the mental health and wellbeing of young children, their families and early childhood educators using a promotion, prevention and early intervention framework. 

You can move from KidsMatter into Be You today!

Registered KidsMatter Early Childhood services or schools, have automatically transitioned to the Be You initiative. Contact us to discuss how you can begin implementing the whole-setting approach to Be You and get individualised support from the team throughout the continuous improvement process. We will be in further contact over the coming weeks too.

See you online soon!
