Awareness of mental health issues is critical for those working with outbound students. Focusing our attention on mental health can prevent crisis and ensure students can fully and safely participate in activities abroad.
DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING
Awareness of mental health issues is becoming increasingly important for those who work with students studying abroad and paying attention to their mental health is critical to avoid a crisis. Knowledge of the various challenges and basic intervention methods enables organizations to identify and assist vulnerable people so they can fully and safely participate in activities abroad. This training serves as an introduction to mental health challenges, to allow ressource persons to react to a traveller facing difficulties, and to guide them towards the appropriate solutions and support.
This workshop outlines basic information and intervention strategies for anxiety disorders, depression and thoughts of suicide, psychosis, eating disorders and ADHD. Participants will learn techniques, tools and skills to intervene effectively with students facing a mental health crisis abroad and ensure their safety.
This training is intended for anyone involved in the development and implementation of international education mobility. Initially offered as a pre-conference workshop at CBIE’s regional meetings, the training has been adapted to be delivered online.
• Learn to recognize the main manifestations associated with mental health difficulties.
• Acquire techniques to intervene with travellers experiencing mental health related issues.
