KidsMatter Primary is a flexible, whole school approach to children’s mental health and wellbeing for primary schools. It takes schools through a two-to-three year cyclical process in which they plan and take action using a comprehensive whole school approach to promotion, prevention and early intervention.

KidsMatter builds on the work schools are already doing to address the mental health of their students through national, state, territory and sector-based mental health initiatives and policies.
