About the event

Anxiety is impacting on the lives of more young Australian's everyday and after battling with it most of their lives, Shaun Kay and Greg Mitchell are passionate facilitators of this enlightening full day learning experience for teachers and leaders. Both educators with extensive experience working in wellness and emotional development, they are excited to share this powerful program.

The Anxiety Antidote empowers teachers with tools and strategies to provide a positive approach to managing student well being. We understand the rising mental health concerns in our schools and it is Smile Teachers mission to better support our teachers so that you can promote a safe emotional environment that nurtures students needs.

In this workshop, you will learn:

- What schools can do to slow anxiety and it's effects.

- How we can create communities that are anxiety aware and resilience enabled.

- What we can do to ensure we are mentally healthy mentors.
