Positive mental health frameworks for you, your team and community

Online workshop: Positive mental health frameworks for you, your team and community.

The last few years have seen us all deal with life changing events, such as natural disasters and the pandemic. Those working in education have been impacted by those events more than almost any other profession.

Coming into 2023 and a new school year, wellbeing and positive mental health is crucial for you, members of your team and your extended community.

Every year, one in five adults will be diagnosed with a mental health disorder affecting how we think, feel, act, handle stress, relate to others and make choices.

Across our lifespan, it is likely that 86% of us will experience more than one form of mental illness.

Declining mental health and wellbeing can present to any of us at any given time. It can also change over time, which is why it’s important that we have a good understanding of a few high prevalence disorders and not just the one that is currently impacting either ourselves or members of our team.

This professional learning will equip you with the knowledge to:

  • Better understand and recognise how different conditions might present in your educational organisation and with members of your team.
  • Recognise the high priority and need for supportive mentally healthy workplaces.
  • Create awareness of the need for open sensitive discussion regarding declining mental health and wellbeing, and how it impacts and presents in your workplace.
  • Recognise, address and support both yourself and your colleagues when mental health and wellbeing declines.
  • Support yourself, your colleagues and extended community in dealing with the symptoms of poor mental health and wellbeing.
  • Step forward towards building a positive mental health framework that will benefit you, your colleagues and your extended community.

Who is this online workshop suitable for?

It is suitable for all teachers, educators and support workers who work with children. This includes early childhood, primary and high school.

The “Positive mental health frameworks for you, your team and community” online workshop may contribute 2 hours of elective professional development that aligns with The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
