KidsMatter has developed a set of video resources that help primary schools understand the benefits of connecting with local health agencies. The following packages will be particularly helpful to health and community professionals working in education.
The input of local health and community agencies strengthens the work schools do to support student mental health. KidsMatter works towards bringing education and health together.
Effective decision making procedures are critical for schools. They provide for prompt attention to children experiencing mental health difficulties. They also strenghten the capacity of school staff to meet their duty of care to their students.
