The Victorian Government is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people across our State, including building a system that will see them thrive and build resilience.
Schools play a key role in providing a positive and inclusive learning environment for all students and can equip young people with the personal skills to support their mental health and wellbeing.
Schools see children and young people every day and can also play a role in identifying signs of mental health issues, providing early support, and referring students to health services.
To support school communities achieve this, the Mental Health Toolkit provides expert guidance and resources on mental health promotion and support aimed at schools and school communities, health and wellbeing workforces and mental health practitioners.
It draws from existing Department of Education and Training resources, guidance and programs and leverages expert external advice on promoting and supporting mental health in schools.
