Mental Fitness Workshops for Educators
Teaching has become a high-stress profession but this fact remains highly unrecognized as all the focus is on the students and their mental health, with little attention being paid to the educators and their mental fitness. These interactive workshops are designed to improve the mental fitness of educators, introduce them to the concept of mindfulness (which they can then also apply in their classrooms), and learn techniques to manage stress more effectively. Images in this video are from a workshop that was conducted at the Good Shepard International School, Ooty. For more information, visit www.healinghideaway.in
What is depression?
Are you depressed, or do you just have the blues? Watch this video to know the symptoms of depression, and decide if you need help. According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O), depression is a common mental disorder. Globally, many millions of people of all ages suffer from depression. It is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and is a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease. In 2016, India has been declared by the W.H.O as the 'most depressed country' in the world. Over 36 percent of India's population is depressed. The actual on-ground figures may be a lot higher as Indians don't often recognize, acknowledge or disclose any mental health issue, including depression. If you or anyone you know is depressed, seek counselling immediately. Visit www.healinghideaway.in
