Travancore School Outreach Team
Supporting positive change for students
Outreach teachers work with students (aged 5-15 years) who are referred by their Royal Children’s Hospital Mental Health Case Manager, supporting them to have a positive experience of school.
Every student is unique, so understanding a student’s strengths, needs and preferences is the first step in supporting positive change at school. Our teachers work in partnership with families, school/education staff, case managers and other professionals to support students to work towards their education goals.
The Outreach Team also works with staff in a range of schools to improve the understanding of mental health.
Our purpose is to improve the participation and connectedness of referred students.
We strive to
Support students to share their voice
Work collaboratively with students' schools and support networks
Understand student needs and support meaningful goal-setting
Recommend supports that help students work towards their goals
Promote mental health awareness, inclusion, and equity in schools.
