Included in the rollout are 113 schools, with 77 identified as needing ‘intensive support’.

The Government confirmed that no new school counsellors will be recruited, but existing counsellors will be relocated to communities impacted by the fires.

State education minister Sarah Mitchell said the Government will work directly with principals and school communities to provide short and long-term support.

"With the impact of the bushfires across NSW, there is a need to increase, target and coordinate mental health support for students and schools," Mitchell said.

"Many schools have been impacted since November last year, with some staff and students losing their homes, seeing communities in distress and witnessing extreme evacuation efforts, which would be very upsetting for anyone to experience.”

Principals, P&Cs and other members of school communities will also receive advice on identifying signs of stress in children.

The Federal Government recently announced an $8 million investment to recruit 25 Beyond Blue mental health liaison officers to support students in bushfire-affected schools and early childcare facilities.
