What is a Be You
Learning Community?

The most effective approach to mental health prevention and promotion is one that involves the whole learning community – including leaders, educators, children, young people and their families, and the wider local community.

This is what we call a ‘whole learning community approach’, and it involves working together with all members of your learning community to create change. It’s about building a positive and inclusive environment which promotes resilience and allows every child, young person, educator, and family member to achieve their best possible mental health.

This approach moves beyond individual educator professional learning and is framed around progressing through the Be You Implementation Process.

A Be You Learning Community is a school or early learning service which has committed to a whole learning community approach to mental health and wellbeing. It has active support from leadership, with an Action Team Leader and team ready to drive change and take action.
