CEA releases Facts on Education document on mental health

January 20, 2017 at 3:00 am Leave a comment

How can we best support student mental well-being? is the January 2017 Facts on Education issue – a one-page joint publication from the Canadian Education Association and the University of Quebec at Montreal. Frankly one page does not do this subject justice however it would work  as a discussion starter. The main page  includes a solid resource list.

From the PDF: While there’s no single cause linked to anxiety and depression, educators can focus on promoting the following factors of positive youth mental health that we know will strengthen students’ coping skills when faced with stressful situations:

  • Positive self-esteem
  • Lifestyles that include physical activity, healthy eating habits and quality sleep
  • Harmonious family relations
  • Supportive school environments that are conducive to learning
  • Positive student-teacher relations
