Supporting the independent education community

Bushfire support for learning communities



Bushfire support for learning communities


Early learning services and schools can play a critical role in supporting communities to respond and recover from the bushfire crisis, whether they have been directly or indirectly affected by the fires. While the physical impact of the bushfire crisis is obvious, the mental health impact may not be.


To support educators in looking after themselves and the children and young people in their care as they return from holidays, Be You has developed a Bushfires resource pack.


The online pack of resources from across the Australian mental health sector will enable you to quickly find information and support that’s relevant to you.


The pack is split into three sections: immediate, short-term and longer-term, acknowledging that mental health recovery from these bushfires may take some time. As more resources are developed, they will be added to the pack.


We hope your learning community finds this information useful and we’ll let you know when more Be You support is available in response to the bushfire crisis.


Warm regards
