This chapter discusses key issues and challenges related to supporting mental health promotion for students with disabilities and special educational needs in Australian schools. We present a multi-tiered framework connecting school-wide approaches to mental health promotion, positive behaviour support, and academic learning that has shown considerable promise internationally, and consider how such a framework might be applied to support positive mental health outcomes for students in Australian schools, with a focus on students with disabilities.
