Education through Inspiration

MENTAL HEALTH TOPICS

Mental health topics have finally received the recognition they deserve in our schools. In education, these topics have completely changed the relationship between school administration, parents, teachers, and students. The ability for each of these groups to recognize the importance of mental health to education has meant a growth in validating the emotions of parents, teachers, and students.

Mental Health & Online Learning

Mental health topics in education center around interactions in the classroom. In 2020, teaching and learning took a sharp turn when most classrooms were turned into virtual classrooms to keep safe during a global pandemic.

Schools worked on offering mental health services for teachers and students, as well as mental health support for parents.

Along with this activity resource guide (see below), EduKitchen offers a look at online learning, and how parents and their children can cope mentally and learn to thrive in this new online class environment.

Physical & Mental Health

Physical health in education is vital to the health and development of mental health for both teachers and students. Schools, teachers, and students benefit greatly from the value physical education has in our school systems. The global pandemic of 2020 put a strain on physical education in schools, and it resulted in students showing a lack of motivation towards their studies. 

Students enjoy the physical education classes offered at their schools, and as a result become highly motivated learners. Teachers as such find it easier to teach highly motivated students, 

We present 5 ways physical health supports mental health, and what teachers can do to bring back the motivation students lost for learning through fun physical activities students can do at home.

Teachers are the role models in the classroom, and the identities they take on may impact on how they see themselves in the classroom.
