In June 2017, headspace Youth Mental Health Foundation, and Early Childhood Australia became implementation partners with beyondblue, to deliver a new National Education Initiative.

headspace School Support program has broadened its title and scope to a new division called headspace in Schools.

From January 1, 2018, headspace in Schools will continue to provide suicide postvention support but will also be delivering KidsMatter (Primary Schools) and MindMatters (Secondary Schools), alongside Early Childhood Australia who will continue their delivery of KidsMatter Early Childhood.

This Initiative will draw together and build upon existing mental health programs, to provide a single end to end, school based mental health framework, to improve the mental health in children and young people across early learning centres, primary and secondary schools.
