My Mind Check is one part of a school’s approach to wellbeing.

Implementing in-school programs should be aligned with school existing strategy and policy.

The My Mind Check portal provides school champions with suggestions for resources that may be relevant to implement within the school environment. Schools are not required to implement any of these programs. Resources are provided as suggestions should the school wish to provide in-school programs that align with the My Mind Check domains.

These in-school suggestions take two forms:
  • Universal programs – suitable for all or any student (typically delivered in large groups) in the school within the nominated age range, regardless of their My Mind Check outcome. These are typically programs that emphasise skill building and focus on prevention, and   
  • Targeted programs – suitable for individuals or small groups of students who may need or want support within a mental health and wellbeing domain, i.e. those who were flagged vulnerable (amber) or struggling (red) via My Mind Check.
