Review: An evidence-based mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools, early childhood education and care services including preschools, kindergartens and day care centres. Targeted health promotion and prevention programs, training and resources for schools, families, health and community professionals. A suite of resources has been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and people working with Indigenous populations. Four key focus areas encompass creating positive school communities, teaching children social and emotional skills, partnering families and increasing recognition and support for children with mental health issues. A number of e-newsletters are available to be emailed, at no cost, to interested teachers, childcare workers, parents or administrators working with children and youth.
