We’re looking for school and early learning staff, and tertiary education students to help us build the best possible national mental health in education framework. If you’re a teacher, educator, principal, school counsellor, student teacher, or have any other role in a school or early learning service, we’d love to hear from you.
 
What’s involved?
We want your opinions, thoughts and ideas, and the benefit of your experience. You’ll have the opportunity to answer some questions we have and will also be able to review material before it’s published, to make sure we’ve got it right. We know your time is valuable, and we value it too. Your involvement can be as little or as much as you want it to be, and you can come and go at any time. You don’t need to have any experience in or knowledge of mental health.
 
What’s beyondblue building?
We’re building an online platform housing interactive evidence-based resources, from promoting good mental health and fostering resilience, through to identifying and assisting young people (and their families) with emerging or existing mental health conditions, to integrated suicide prevention planning and postvention responses. Trackable, personalised records means e-learning topics will contribute to educators’ Continuing Professional Development. A national team (from our implementation partners Early Childhood Australia and headspace) will support schools and early learning services to establish an action team to implement their own tailored mental health strategy.
 
When?
We’ll be starting with a short survey via email in late November/early December. We expect the bulk of our contact will be in the first six months of 2018.
