Australian principals are facing unprecedented challenges, highlighting the pressing need for support; 64% increase in "red flag" alerts triggered by principals in 2022, indicating serious impacts on quality of life; and the rise in parental dysregulation towards school teams is a growing concern, impacting the wellbeing of school leaders and staff in 2023.
Recently Camp Australia conducted a survey with our partners which revealed a key area of concern for principals and educators is wellbeing for school leaders and teams. To respond to this interest and concern, we have collaborated with Kristen Douglas from Headspace to provide a highly engaging and informative session on the the importance of school leader wellbeing.
Kristen Douglas has over 27 years’ experience in the education, health, mental health, suicide, not-for-profit, and government sectors. She has significantly contributed to the synergy between education and mental health in Australia. As National Manager and Head of headspace Schools & Communities, Kristen continues to lead a large multi-disciplinary national team of mental health and education professionals to support schools across Australia from promotion, prevention, early intervention, intervention, to postvention.
To ensure we deliver on our promise to be the Partner of Choice, we designed the Insight Series around our partners’ needs but also their schedule. The Series is available through video, audio and transcript so that it can be consumed by principals and educators when, where and how it is most convenient for them. And even more importantly, we’re giving them the platform to ask their questions, so that the content is tailored, practical and relevant.
When you partner with us, you will have exclusive access to leading specialists who will provide relevant insights, supportive information and practical tips on the topics of resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
