Improving student mental health
Develop your teaching strategies to promote positive student mental health
Growing numbers of students at schools and universities are experiencing mental health issues.
The act of learning can be extremely positive for student mental wellbeing, but it can also exacerbate or even cause mental health difficulties. Though there have been calls for action on mental health made globally, there’s little guidance in this area.
On this microcredential, you’ll learn how to embed mental wellbeing in your teaching. You’ll discover how to apply inclusive teaching strategies and learn how to design appropriate learning activities that are conducive to students’ mental health.
The World Health Organisation reported that 10-20% of children globally experience mental disorders and half of all mental illnesses begin by age 14. Although 98% of surveyed teachers had come into contact with pupils experiencing mental health issues, only 46% received mental health training.
Help young people develop resilience in the modern world, and get the training you need to support mental health in your classroom.
This microcredential has a global focus and the skills you’ll learn will be relevant for learners from countries around the world.
It is specifically intended for teachers, trainers, learning designers, educational technologists, heads of department and institution leaders in a variety of settings, including schools, colleges, universities, and workplace learning settings.
This teacher training microcredential is designed for anyone with a strong interest in teaching and learning.
You do not have to be a practising teacher to take this microcredential and no prior knowledge of educational theory is assumed.
All teaching is in English, and your proficiency in the language needs to be adequate for undergraduate study. If English is not your first language we recommend you can achieve an IELTS score of at least seven.
