Be You

Be You is a national initiative for educators, aimed at promoting and protecting positive mental health in children and young people. Our vision is for an education system in which every learning community is positive, inclusive and resilient, and where every child, young person, staff member, and family can achieve their best possible mental health.

Be You empowers educators by supporting them to develop their mental health skills and knowledge, while also providing guidance on how to implement whole-service and school approaches. It offers a range of online, evidence-based tools and resources aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of educators to foster and support mental health and wellbeing in children and young people.

The Broome Primary School Be You Action Team is passionate about supporting the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of our school community. We run events such as our Big Breakfasts and take action around promoting and celebrating Mother’s and Father’s Day, RUOK? Day and anti-bullying events.

Based on our school surveys, we collate feedback from staff, students and families which informs how our school can work to continuously strengthen community.
