Assalama Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu,
This term we looked at the unit "mind matters". In this unit, students examined skills and attitudes that enhance resilience. They examined case studies of people that have overcome adversity and have identified their characteristics and qualities. Students had the time to do personal reflections on their life where they had faced challenges and then assessing positive management strategies to cope with their circumstance. Students also enjoyed the exploration of community perceptions about mental health and how the stigma attached to mental health is alarming. Overall the students appreciated the importance of raising awareness towards mental health well being and being able to implement self management skills to effectively manage complex situations.
