Heads up on a mental health focused seminar on the 13th October that Sascha brought to my attention….
Mental Health Week will run from 9-16 October 2021 and during that week ADCET (Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training) is delighted to have Brandon Taylor, Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy Manager for TAFE presenting a short 30-minute webinar – Mental health. What does it look like?.
Your mental wellbeing is the unique way that you handle your emotions, respond to stress and also your general outlook on life. Having a healthy sense of mental wellbeing has many benefits. In this session, we will look at the six different areas (building blocks) of mental wellbeing and the practical strategies and activities to incorporate these into your day-to-day life.
