We know educators are incredibly busy and fitting more into an already full day can be a challenge.
That’s why there’s a wide range of tools, resources and sources of support available to assist you in bringing Be You to your learning community. Like the rest of Be You, these tools and resources are designed to be flexible and adaptable to your unique situation. Some early learning services and schools will use all of them while others will pick and choose depending on what’s happening in their learning communities at the time.
Suicide prevention and response
We’re here to help if your learning community is affected by suicide.
The Suicide Prevention and Suicide Response resources will assist your school with the planning and implementation of roles and processes, including structures for managing the first hours, days and weeks after a death by suicide, and for moving into recovery and returning to a normal routine. The resources include strategies for supporting staff, students and families, and for managing risk associated with suicide.
A Be You Consultant can support your community throughout the planning and response phase.

Be You Fact Sheets provide information about a range of topics and issues connected to the professional learning. Think of them as quick reference resources, with factual information about a particular issue. Many people come to Be You with a particular question or issue in mind, and the Fact Sheets are a great starting point to get answers. They’re also a valuable resource to share with families and others in your learning community.
