Creating a Mentally Healthy Learning Community With Be You
beyondblue ‘Be You’ team

Mental health is everyone’s business – leaders, educators, families, children and young people, but a whole setting approach starts with just one person…you. Join the Be You team to discuss the steps you can take to make your learning community a more positive, inclusive and resilient environment for all. Develop confidence, build capacity and create change through exploring Be You from a whole-learning community lens and walk away from the workshop with key reflections and actions to help continue your journey back at school.
