Mental Health and Cyberbullying

Support to promote the health and wellbeing of our state's students
Schools have a range of strategies in place to promote positive mental health. 
This includes creating positive environments, maintaining strong connections with families and communities and social and emotional learning.
In committing to promoting positive mental health, our schools can also help to foster satisfaction and success in all aspects of their students' lives.
 
In February 2018, the Victorian Government announced additional support to promote the health and wellbeing of our state's students.
With a specific focus on mental health and bullying, this investment will give our schools the resources and tools they need to maintain a positive environment.
Recognising a growing need, this additional support will also include a dedicated focus on preventing suicide. 
Together, these investments will help support the work of our schools and ensure our kids are happy and healthy.

Cyberbullying
 “Federal Education Minister, Simon Birmingham has called for a total ban on the use of mobile phones during school time, in a bid to crack down on cyberbullying. 
 
What do you think - Should we ban mobile phones at schools? And how would such a ban be policed? Let us know in the comments below. #9Today”
