Next VIC/TAS ISANA PD SESSION and AGM
AGM- BRANCH COMMITTEE NOMINATIONS AND ELECTIONS
Warm greetings to ISANA members and Non-members alike. I would like to remind you about our next PD session: International Students Mental Health – Common issues, challenges, strengths and useful support strategies. There is evidence that 1 in 4 people aged 15-24 will experience mental ill-health in one year. More specifically, tertiary students with mental health issues are at higher risk of dropping out early, academic failure, limited social connections and poor health outcomes.
This topic is relevant to all of us as we work hard every day trying to make a difference in the lives of international students. Sometimes we feel powerless to do anything positive which is why this PD is so important. The presenters bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and will provide a way for you to think about wellbeing and importantly, how to improve your own and that of others. Please see below for more information and registration details.
