Supporting the social and emotional development and wellbeing of children and young people has been associated with better mental health outcomes, improved behaviour and higher academic achievement.

Teachers and children's services educators also have a role in identifying those children and young people who need further assessment or support and helping them to access other services .

The Hunter Institute of Mental Health is dedicated to mental health promotion, and the prevention and early intervention of mental health difficulties and mental illnesses in children and young people. We specialise in tertiary education and working with schools, universities and early childhood education and care services.
