The importance of supporting students’ wellbeing for enhancing learning and social and emotional development is well established. Nurturing students’ wellbeing in safe, supportive and inclusive school and home environments assists children and young people to be resilient, confident and lifelong learners.

Resilient and confident students not only perform better academically but are more likely to develop and maintain healthy, positive relationships and make responsible lifestyle choices.

A whole school approach to supporting students’ wellbeing and mental health

Schools play a critical role in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all Queensland state school students. The department’s Student learning and wellbeing framework assists schools to implement a whole school approach to supporting students’ wellbeing and mental health across the continuum—from universal promotion and prevention approaches to targeted responses to students’ mental health concerns.

Educators, parents, and children and young people themselves all have a role to play as part of a whole school approach to supporting the wellbeing and mental health of all Queensland state school students.
