Abstract:
  • Is it ever right to disclose a diagnosed mental health condition up front in an interview or having been hired for a job in language teaching?
  • What kinds of factors are a cause of stress for language teachers?
  • How confident do you feel at recognising symptoms of poor mental health in those teachers?
  • How can a manager support a language teacher without specific training?
  • In what ways can an institution support the mental health and wellbeing of its employees?

We will look at these questions and more in this workshop as the presenter draws on personal experience, mental health training that he has undergone via the charity, Mind, and a recent large-scale piece of research that he carried out.  The presenter will ask for participants to contribute to the discussion, but this is entirely optional. Given the sensitive nature of the topic, you are welcome to edit your attendance name and make it anonymous.
