Year 8 ‘Healthy Minds’ Parent Information Evening
On Tuesday night, Year 8 parents were invited to attend ‘Seven Secrets to a Healthy Mind’—a parent seminar hosted by Clinical Psychologist, Dr Tom Nehmy.
This virtual seminar introduced parents to the ‘Healthy Minds’ Program, an important component of the BGGS Year 8 Ethics Curriculum.
Dr Nehmy, who specialises in preventative psychology, created the ‘Healthy Minds’ Program to provide students with skills that promote emotional wellness and resilience. In this seminar, he demonstrated how the program:
- builds and maintains students’ mental health and wellbeing
- helps students understand the true meaning of ‘wellbeing’ and ‘resilience’
- can help prevent, and reduce the risk of, students developing anxiety and depression
- assists students to perform to the best of their abilities across academic and co-curricular activities.
