Students’ Mental Health and Well-being Introductive Course

Description

Concept by Emilia Frantsi

Mental health is part of our overall health, and its influences on our well-being should not be underestimated. In fact, all of us suffer from mental health-related problems from time to time.

Mental health-related issues have also been on a significant rise among our young students. However, very often, mental health-related problems are confronted with fear and stigma.

This doesn’t have to be the case! With knowledge and skills, mental health can be well-supported and nourished.

Teachers who possess relevant knowledge concerning mental health will strengthen their capacity to support students, as well as the teacher’s own well-being.

This course opens up the concept of mental health from a salutogenic perspective, meaning that mental health is approached from the perspective of health promotion.

Mental health is approached with curiosity and openness in a way that you will gain a thorough understanding of what mental health is (and what it is not).

You will also find practical ways to apply the knowledge and skills you learned in this course in your everyday life as a teacher.
