MindMatters is a mental health initiative for secondary schools that aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people. MindMatters provides school staff with blended professional learning and provides structure, guidance and support to enable schools to build their own mental health strategy to suit their unique circumstances.

How you can help:
Beyond Blue is developing new content to enhance the MindMatters framework, which is focused on the needs of priority populations and some specific topics.
If you work in a secondary school, we would like to hear your thoughts on working with young people on issues around bullying, suicide, self-harm and mental health and what you find useful in your role to support students.
