Teachers Professional Development

Mind Blank professional development programs provide mental health education based on prevention and early intervention training. We focus on skilling up teachers so they know what to do in a time of need.

Mind Blank will facilitate an online or face-to-face mental health workshop. Stories of lived experience are shared and professional actors and trained up health care workers host a resilience-building session using role play techniques to engage participants to learn new skills.      

Participants will learn important pathways encouraging emotional and mental wellness within a school setting. Practical application of these skills has the potential to increase an individual’s chance of successful early intervention support for student health and wellbeing.

Each workshop is designed to draw the participants in to discussion around early intervention mental health topics. We have the below program packages that can be tailored to your school's needs.
