The rise of young people experiencing mental health issues has been well documented. Ask any teacher or school counsellor and they will attest to the growing number of students struggling with emotional regulation issues such as depression and anxiety. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that worldwide, 10-20% of children and adolescents experience mental disorders, with half of all mental health illnesses beginning by the age of 14. If untreated, these conditions severely influence children’s development, their educational attainment and potential to live fulfilling and productive lives (WHO, 2018).
In this webinar, AISA chats with Sean about how schools can provide effective support for students struggling with their mental health and what schools can do to help students develop mindsets and resiliency to promote positive well-being.
