Mental health and wellbeing in education: How can we respond?
27/11/2019 / 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£91
Over the last few years, concerns about the mental health of students have been raised extensively by the media. Most educators in psychology recognise that our students sometimes struggle with their mental health. This timely workshop provides educators in higher education and pre-university teachers with an opportunity to discuss and share practice.
The day will include discussions of Mental Health First Aid training in universities and schools, and will explore other initiatives that have been employed to support students’ mental health.
We know that our students are part of a wider community, and it is important to open up the conversation across society. In the afternoon we welcome bestselling author Dr Dean Burnett, who will be talking about having wider discussions about Mental Health, including what he has learned from publishing his recent book aimed at teenagers “Why Your Parents Are Driving You Up the Wall and What To Do About It” and new audio book “Psycho-Logical!” and how he has approached writing about mental health for general public.
We anticipate that workshop participants will leave with ideas for how to adapt their own practice to promote good mental health and wellbeing among their students.
