Helping students be in a GoodSpace to learn

Empowering school teams to create environments where students are mentally supported and able to learn.

  • Improve student attendance, engagement, and academic performance.

  • A safer, more positive learning environment.

  • Early identification and best practice support for student mental wellbeing.

GoodSpace Schools Mission

We are working with schools, students, and the University of Auckland to improve mental wellbeing and reduce youth suicide numbers in New Zealand. Our passionate team of medical, digital health & IT experts has developed a digital mental wellbeing screening platform, that has become the leading platform of its kind in New Zealand schools.

Our vision is to support all students to be in a GoodSpace to learn

Screening Features

NZ schools are supporting students with GoodSpace


Over 10,000 students were screened in 2022


of students were identified with potential safeguarding concerns


of those were not already known to the wellbeing team

No student is overlooked

Young people do not ask for help like adults. Some are too anxious to come forward, and others may not recognise they have a problem that their school wellbeing team could help with. We must ask students the right questions to identify if they are at risk.​

GoodSpace Schools screening setting successfully identifies students who would not otherwise come forward.

Screen 100% of your students with the GoodSpace screening questionnaire. It only takes 10-15 minutes, so you can screen an entire year group at a time without disrupting the curriculum.

Prioritise support with existing resources

By using our automated triage feature, schools can easily identify which students may need the most support and prioritise their response accordingly. This means that you can manage wellbeing within existing resources, ensuring that the most vulnerable students are given the attention they need in a timely manner.

"We were able to immediately identify students with the highest needs and focus our initial efforts by implementing safety plans within 48 hours. We were then able to follow up remaining students with lower risk. This enabled us to utilize our scarce resources in the most equitable way."  - Victoria Marsden, Head of Wellbeing at Hobsonville Point Secondary School

Fast screening with real-time results

With GoodSpace, you can screen an entire student year group in 10 minutes with no disruption to timetables. School leadership teams also receive aggregated data reports that highlight wellbeing issues and trends. This enables you to take a data-driven approach for curriculum planning and wellbeing initiatives. ​

Our screening framework and platform can be customized to meet the unique needs of different school environments, populations, resources, and student needs. GoodSpace has been implemented from years 7-13 in different types of schools in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, across secondary and intermediate, from low to high decile.

Benefits to schools

Screening of adolescents within a school setting has been shown to successfully identify students who would not otherwise come forward. Electronic screening has also been shown to be as effective as an initial face-to-face psychosocial assessment in young people.
