In this one hour webinar pause and reflect on an extraordinary year. Consider what’s changed, what’s worked well and how to strengthen your learning community to cope with the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic and natural disasters.


  • Examine how to talk with your leadership about how the events of 2020 have created an opportunity to approach mental health in a different way.
  • Learn about Be You’s new surveys platform that you can use to consult with staff, families, children and young people about mental health and wellbeing.
  • Discover how Be You’s Implementation and Reflection Toolkit can help you identify wellbeing priorities and leverage your early learning service or school’s strengths to progress towards a more mentally healthy community.
  • Discuss with other educators reflections on 2020 and ideas for 2021 mental health and wellbeing planning.


2020 has been a year of great challenges for many, but also great learning and advances in our approach to mental health. Let’s take some time out during this busy time of year to capture what we’ve learnt and what we’ll do differently in the future.
