MindMatters

MindMatters is a national mental health initiative for secondary schools funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing and implemented by Principals Australia Inc. Principals Australia exists to support principals and their associations to build effective, inspirational and sustainable leadership in Australian schools. The MindMatters initiatives were developed in recognition of the need to address the mental health and wellbeing of young Australians. Based on the World Health Organisation Global School Health initiative and the National Health Promoting Schools framework, MindMatters supports promotion, prevention and early intervention for schools. MindMatters promotes a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing focussing on entire school communities, not just individual students with identified needs. It aims to enhance the development of school environments where young people feel safe, valued, engaged and useful.
