The mental health needs of school students are complex and on the rise. Increased rates of anxiety, sleep problems, depression, behavioural and attention deficit disorders have been evidenced. Schools are often perceived as the primary support for student mental health and wellbeing, leading many schools across Australia to develop in-house wellbeing programs and support services. This is adding extra complexities to teaching roles, whilst using valuable school funds to deliver these services.
At Grow Wellbeing we believe mental health professionals such as Psychologists, Social Workers and Mental Health Occupational Therapists should play an integral role in improving the wellbeing of students, whilst offering valuable support to parents, teachers and the whole school community. The benefits of mental health and wellbeing staff supporting primary and high school communities has been well researched. Improvements in student wellbeing leads to enhanced learning and overall life outcomes.
