More Wellbeing Support

Korus Connect welcomes the Victorian Government’s plan to provide additional mental health support for Victorian school students.

As providers of more than 190 chaplains in 240+ Victorian schools, who have supported students through 127,000+ pastoral care sessions through a broad range of challenges during 2020/2021, we know the demand for such support has increased exponentially due to the pandemic, and continue to advocate for more investment in the most important challenge of preserving and rebuilding the wellbeing of all our school communities.

The provision of a broad range of supports - psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual - remains central to a society which values the wellbeing of all people including our students, and we look forward to working with these new mental health support workers as part of Victoria’s holistic approach to this vital endeavour.
