Implementing school-based mental health prevention programs

Schools provide a natural setting for supporting youth mental health and wellbeing.

Implementing school-based mental health programs involves considering the needs of students, school education and wellbeing staff, as well as the broader community and mental health support system.

This toolkit provides information and practical tips about implementing youth mental health programs in schools, including how programs should be delivered, facilitated, and tailored for local contexts.

It is primarily aimed at school leaders and school-based mental health professionals, though other education and wellbeing professionals may find it useful.
