The Be You Program through continuous professional development of educators will promote optimal social and emotional health and wellness in schools. 

The Senior Consultant – Be You (Clinical) will provide a clinical response, tailored to the individual needs of school communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from suicide. Reporting to the State Manager, you will ensure that schools receive timely and clinically sound support and remain updated on new resources and material available in the integrated program.
