Be You – Growing a mentally healthy generation
Be You aims to transform Australia’s approach to supporting children’s and young people’s mental health in early learning services and schools. Their 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.
Recently, Be You held an In Focus webinar providing practical tips and strategies for supporting the whole school community (students, educators and families) through the primary to secondary school transition phase. The panelists were Dr Lisa Mundy (project manager of the Childhood to Adolescence Transition Study (CATS)
) along with Jodie Scanlon (a primary school educator and a Be You Educational Consultant) and Mary Coupland (community liaison officer and school administration officer at Arthur Phillip High School).
