Student mental health & performance requires a platform of resilience to be truly preventative & that means a different approach to mental health in school.
Being a parent is the hardest job in the world, we have no training & no manual, pick your battles and keep the communication open, and remember this pressure is far different to what we went through at their age.
Resilience: Helping students engage with challenge, identify limiting beliefs and understand that failure is not something to fear.
Students of today are our future leaders and it’s vital we support them with the mind-set, skillset and resources to better manage their mental health, navigate challenges and setbacks and prepare them for future employability. Studies show that developing resilience has a positive influence on academic performance of undergraduates as well as their social and emotional wellbeing.
