What's Be You?

This mental health in education initiative is delivered by Beyond Blue, in collaboration with Early Childhood Australia and headspace. Be You supports educators from early learning services and schools to develop a positive, inclusive and resilient learning community where every child, young person, educator and family can achieve their best possible mental health. Be You’s vision is to build an education system in which every learning community is positive, inclusive and resilient – where every child, young person, staff member and family can achieve their best possible mental health.

Who is Be You For?

Be You is for all Australian educators across early learning, primary and secondary school settings (including pre-service educators). By ‘educators’, Be You refers to anyone who works with children and young people in early learning settings, primary and secondary schools.

If you’re committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people from the early years to 18, then Be You is for you.
