Mental Health in Primary Schools

Mental Health and Wellbeing Initiative 


ASPS is part of the roll out of an exciting government initiative, which is supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people. We are continually working to support staff and their capacity to: 


  • Identify mental health concerns in the classroom
  • Improve referral pathways for students requiring further assessment 
  • Implement effective mental health strategies in-classroom.

Teachers are ideally placed to address emerging mental health issues. With access to the Mental Health and Wellbeing Coordinators, we have seen improved care pathways for kids who may otherwise have slipped through the cracks.
