Be You Initiative

Star of the Sea Primary School are proud to be a part of the Australian Be You Initiative.

Be You aims to transform Australia’s approach to supporting children’s and young people’s mental health in early learning services and schools. Its vision is that every learning community is positive, inclusive and resilient – a place where every child, young person, educator and family can achieve their best possible mental health.

Be You promotes mental health and wellbeing, from the early years to 18, and offers educators and learning communities evidence-based online professional learning, complemented by a range of tools and resources to turn learning into action. Be You empowers educators, helping them to develop valuable mental health skills and knowledge, while also providing an effective model for implementing a whole-learning community approach to mental health and wellbeing.

Be You is led by Beyond Blue with delivery partners Early Childhood Australia and headspace. Both partners have local teams of trained consultants to provide advice and support to early learning services and schools nationally to help implement a whole-learning community approach growing Australia’s most mentally healthy generation.

Over the past week, our staff and the students in years 4-6 completed their Be You survey. We are now asking each family to take some time to complete the ‘Family Be You Survey’ via the link below. This survey is anonymous and does not collect any private information. There are no right or wrong answers. The survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. The aim of this survey is to find out what’s already working and map out what more to do to support a mentally healthy learning community.
