Australian Professional Standards for Teachers 1.5, 1.6 and 4.1 will be a main focus during this workshop.

Mental illness doesn’t wait until adulthood to surface. Over a 12 month period, 1 in 4 young people will experience a mental illness. Often masked and unseen, it holistically impacts the development of a young person’s educational journey and learning outcomes. With effective intervention and support, anxiety and other mental illness should not hinder the positive learning pathways for a student. This session aims to give you confidence to talk about, approach and deal with student mental health illness issues.

This workshop aims to:

  • Acknowledge anxiety and other mental illness as a realistic presence in the lives of learners of all ages.
  • Identify basic signs and symptoms of common mental illness.
  • Explore case examples of learning, such as the facilitators “Anxious Bird “ educational experiences.
  • Appreciate the importance of a teachers role within the Recovery Model.
  • Explore effective intervention strategies and investigate the use of student centred resources.
