Podcast: Mental ill health in the student population and the impacts for educators
The transcript for this podcast will be available shortly.
This ADCET podcast is the audio version of our webinar: Mental ill health in the student population and the impacts for educators presented by Brandon Taylor (Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy Manager, TAFE Queensland).
ADCET was delighted to welcome back Brandon Taylor (Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy Manager, TAFE Queensland) for another hugely popular and informative presentation. In this webinar, Brandon asks four key questions to determine what has changed for adolescents in Australia over the previous two decades and what this means for tertiary educators and support services.
- Are more students disclosing and displaying mental health problems?
- How can we support and refer students who are experiencing mental ill health?
- Why and how we can maintain our boundaries?
- What are some simple proactive self-care measures that protect and maintain our own well-being?
Educators and support services are not immune to mental health and well-being challenges, both professional and personal.
Brandon reviews the trends and data from Mission Australia Youth Surveys and reflects on key elements of the latest report from The Black Dog Institute: Turning the Tide on Depression. He then reflects on what this means for educators and practitioners and our personal values and purpose.
Q&A was included in this webinar and can be accessed through the webinar recording.
