Mental Health Education Program

Schools play an important role in supporting the mental health needs of young people and their families. This program delivers free mental health education workshops to primary* and secondary school communities across Australia. 

Our aim is to increase student understanding of mental health and wellbeing, what impacts it, reduce stigma and help young people and their families build strategies and skills to manage challenges and changes, including where to get help. 

*Note in Primary schools we only offer the Transitions: Primary to secondary school workshop

These workshops are available to all schools across Australia, including regional and remote areas. They are interactive, strength-based and evidence-informed and timed to fit a standard school lesson. Workshops are facilitated onsite at schools, and/or via webinar at no cost.

School staff and local headspace centre staff are invited to participate in the workshops where possible. These workshops complement mental health and wellbeing strategies that schools already have in place, including the Be You National Initiative for educators.
