Now what?

After a student’s check-in

My Mind Check provides suggestions on how to effectively communicate and guide students and their caregivers after a check-in. We understand that there is limited time available during a busy school term but also a desire to understand and support student wellbeing. My Mind Check provides schools with how-to guides, templates, and resources on our website and within the school portal.

The check-in provides an opportunity to understand how a student feels they are going with their mental health and wellbeing. It also allows you to share information that might help caregivers to understand and support their child better.

We expect around 12% of students to be placed in the struggling (red) range and another 3% to score in the vulnerable (amber) range, on average across Australia. However, the number in each category within any given school is not possible to predict and will depend on many factors. In our previous research we found that most schools ranged from as few as 5% to as many as 25% in the struggling category.

It is important to remember that approximately one third of these are likely to already be in mental health services and won’t need as much attention.

Schools must obtain ‘opt in’ consent for each participant prior to conducting a check-in. In most cases, consent will be sought from the student’s parent and/or legal guardian. In some schools, students aged 15 years or older will have the opportunity to consent for themselves.  

The consent process is the responsibility of each school and will be handled in accordance with their usual processes and privacy regulations. To support schools with this process, My Mind Check offers ‘Information and Consent’ templates, a ‘Withdrawal of Consent’ template, as well as newsletter/website copy to disseminate amongst caregivers and students.  

To withdraw consent, a ‘Withdrawal of Consent’ form must be completed and submitted to the school*. This form is available from the school portal and should be provided to caregivers or students upon request.  Once submitted, the school must delete the student from the school portal. The student’s individual data will be permanently removed from the system and will no longer be visible to the school.  

*Where the student was the original provider of consent, only the student should be permitted to withdraw consent.
