Current research predicts mental illnesses are increasing in the lives of young people. Before the age of 18, 50% of young people will experience a mental illness. For adolescents, this equates to 1 in 4 children in your classrooms. Mental illness without doubt, impacts upon the concentration, memory, higher functioning such as decision making, and the emotional journey of children at school.

This increased diagnosis and awareness of mental illness in the classroom, sees the necessity to build the model of recovery into the education plan of children. This session will align best practice approaches of mental health recovery, into plan developments in line with education outcomes.

From this session, you will walk away with:

  • Confidence in strategies to meet education outcomes by embracing mental illness in the individualised education plan of the child
  • Enriched understanding and implementation of person centred, and collaborated approaches in developing plans in the mental illness recovery model
  • Confidence in identifying key players and possible referrals in the child’s education plan, with clear lines of accountability
  • Increased understanding in the development of the wheel of recovery specific to each child, and incorporating the cycles of change in recovery
  • Active development of the recovery wheel, with practical strategies and measures you can take back into the classroom
  • A strong belief that mental illness can be managed in a classroom setting and in the lives of young people.
