KidsMatter Primary is growing very quickly

This is a result of the great work done by our teams in all the states and territories. Staff are generally based in capital cities, but we also have people in Townsville, on the Sunshine Coast, on the Gold Coast and in Ballarat.


How KidsMatter Primary is organised

Principals Australia Institute (PAI) in Adelaide, and the Australian Psychological Society (APS) in Melbourne are responsible for delivering KidsMatter Primary. KidsMatter contracts are managed by beyondblue on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health.

  • PAI is responsible for the delivery of professional development, resources and support to schools with primary student enrolments, and education partnerships.
  • APS is responsible for the development of resources, mental health content, and health and community partnerships.

PAI teams are located in all the states and territories. Each team is managed by a state or territory manager, who is the main point of contact for KidsMatter Primary in that part of Australia. The national office is point of contact for general enquiries.

PAI is contracted to deliver KidsMatter Primary to 2600 schools by 30 June 2015.
