Supporting Educator’s Well-Being During The Holidays
One in four adults experiences mental illness every year, yet fewer than half of those receive treatment. These issues affect people from all walks of life – no one is immune to psychological distress. Although mental illness is fairly common, sufferers often feel too embarrassed to seek help. This can ultimately have devastating consequences – mental illness lessens an individual’s quality of life and can even result in suicide.
In this training presented by Carolina Vargas, Community Education Coordinator, you will learn signs of mental health distress in students and faculty members, recognize holiday-related stressors for educators, and how to relate to yourself and others through practical tools such as breathing exercises and panic attack intervention tools.
