The Victorian Government has invested $217.8 million over four years to support student mental health and wellbeing, including $200 million to create a Schools Mental Health Fund and Menu.
Underpinning the Schools Mental Health Fund will be an evidence-based Menu. It will give schools confidence in purchasing programs and interventions that will meet their students’ mental health and wellbeing needs.
The Menu will provide schools with opportunities to purchase support for initiatives that promote mental health and wellbeing, enable schools to intervene early to support students, and provide targeted support for individual students.
The Schools Mental Health Fund will rollout out in all government regional and rural schools from Term 3, 2022 and all government metropolitan schools by 2024.
All schools, including Catholic and independent schools, will be able to access and view the Menu.
Expression of interest process
An expression of interest (EOI) process will run in 2022 for the 2023 Menu. Providers across the student mental health and wellbeing sector can apply.
We'll update this page with details of the EOI process when it becomes available.
