Supporting youth mental health

What do student mental health check-ins mean for schools and students?

1 in 7 young people have a mental health disorder[1]. 89% don’t get the help they need.

My Mind Check is a free, voluntary and evidence-based digital mental health and wellbeing check-in for school students. ​​It allows schools to take a proactive approach to hear from students on how they are doing.

The tool is evidence-based and is built on research by Macquarie University and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, as part of their commitment to help our kids bounce back, post-Covid.

The School Principal first registers their school. Schools then determine whether they will conduct check-ins for the whole school (recommended) or for specific year levels. Check-ins are then carried out during school hours with students answering a series of age-appropriate questions reflecting their current mental health and wellbeing.  

Following a check-in, nominated school staff members (known as School Champions) review School Dashboards and Student Dashboards within the My Mind Check portal. For students experiencing difficulties, the tool provides follow-up guidance to assist the school in their support of the student.
