This session explores the importance of not underestimating the importance of student wellbeing programs in planning and developing a school calendar. It is well researched that Mental illness experiences, throughout primary and secondary years, increase in prevalence during this period for young people, with a particular emphasis on anxiety disorders.

By adolescents 1 in 4 of all teenagers will experience a mental illness episode. In fact, understanding that the framework of wellbeing programs, is central to our understanding of mental illnesses and the presentations before the age of 25, is the foundation that all wellbeing programs should be built on.

Creative school approaches and education can see wellbeing as an integrated part of the school culture.

This day unpacks wellbeing goals into achievable school base activities:

  • What does student wellbeing look like, and aim to do?
  • How does our understanding of mental illness impact upon the programs we offer to our students?
  • How can we actively engage young people in person centred programs that sees them take ownership of their own mental wellbeing?

Through the day you will explore how to creatively translate our knowledge of the major mental illness experienced by young people, into sound practical strategies of support. You will also have the opportunity to showcase your best practice approaches in wellbeing programs with other schools.
