How does mental health affect learning?

Examinations, deadlines and difficulties with friends can result in pressure and stress for students (and teachers). Join us this fortnight to explore how mental health impacts learning with other teachers and the following educational researchers:

  • Discuss risk factors for mental illness with Christina.
  • Ask Sveta about interventions to support social and emotional cognition and self-regulation.
  • Chat with Alice about how emotion understanding relates to behaviour and school outcomes.
  • Speak with Cat about development of social and emotional processing during adolescence.

When are live chats?

  • Thursday 17th May, 8-9pm
  • Tuesday 22nd May, 8-9pm

Get the dates in your planner now, we’ll remind you before each chat.
