Now in it’s 3rd year, the Mental Health in Education Summit has provided actionable advice and insights for educators from around Australia. In 2019 the event shifts focus to a holistic approach at mental health – from students to staff to community groups and principals.

At The Mental Health in Education Summit you will learn:
