6 October - National Symposium on Teachers Mental Health and Wellbeing


Event Description

Over 50% of Australian teachers suffer from anxiety and nearly one-fifth, from depression. The mental health and wellbeing of teachers’ is extremely important, not only because of the detrimental effect on teachers’ themselves but also the direct impact on the students’ experiences in a classroom.

The main sources that affect the mental health of teachers,’ includes excessive workload, time pressure and behavioural challenges with students, management of bullying and reactive management strategies and difficulties with colleagues and parents.

With that in mind, the Foundation is organising a National Symposium on Teachers’ Mental Health to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing among principals and teachers, and to have a discussion on the status of support services available to them.


Free entry, donations are accepted.
