Mental Health in Primary Schools Pilot

Golden Square Primary School has been involved in the Mental Health in Primary Schools pilot program since its inception in the latter half of 2020. We were one of ten primary schools involved, however, the number of schools has now expanded to a total of 26 schools in 2021.


The program has been developed by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI) in collaboration with the University of Melbourne and the Victorian Department of Education and Traning.


The pilot enables us to employ a Mental Health and Wellbeing Coordinator to help identify and manage emerging mental health issues in students and provide connections between education, social and health services, while also supporting staff to better understand and respond to mental health issues affecting our students.
