The digitalisation of mental health – webinar by Christina Furtado
2 May 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
A growing number of students we send abroad or welcome to our programmes suffer from mental health issues. The main areas of concern are Depression, Stress, Anxiety and Cultural Adaptation related issues. One of our members, guard.me is running a programme to offer support for these students together with Morneau Shepell which is the largest mental health organisation in North America.
We would like to invite you to learn more about the possible challenges you could be facing, the support you can give and generally raise awareness about mental health issues that can effect your students.
keep.me SAFE session summary:
Considerable progress is being made across the globe, in terms of mental health awareness, yet there is still work to be done. As educators, we must pay greater attention to the promotion of mental health for the entire student population, breaking down barriers wherever possible. We will focus on the importance of the school community supporting initiatives in order to break down stigma and holistically support all students throughout their academic career. It’s time to make a difference and meet the students where they are at.
ALTO members please log in to the members’ area on the webpage (Members/ Members’ Resources) to download the presentation slides and watch the webinar recording – available until 21st June 2019.
