24th March, 2021 @ 5:00 pm


24/03/2021 - 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Practical Steps for School Leaders

The AISSA presents Kristen Douglas, National Manager and Head of headspace Schools, the National Youth Mental Health Foundation. The challenges and uncertainty of 2020 highlighted the importance for teams and individuals to undertake practical steps and processes to help themselves and their teams recalibrate, re-energise, re-balance, and refocus on the future.

Built on principles of recovery and reflection, this webinar is aimed at providing school leaders with practical strategies for leading through complex events and experiences to: –

  • acknowledge and process experiences and create a healthy supportive narrative going forward
  • offset stress and focus on 2021 with a new vista.

When school communities have been impacted by an event, be it short term or prolonged, it’s important to go through an articulated and guided stage of processing in a strengths-based, positive, and considered way. This means processing the experience, processing the impact, processing the disruption, and ensuring we celebrate the gains and achievements.

Kristen Douglas is the National Manager & Head of headspace Schools (the Australian Youth Mental Health Foundation). headspace is contributing to a national ground swell of conversations and strategies to ensure that education staff take care of their own mental health and prioritise their wellbeing.

Kristen specialises in Education Executive & School Principal mental health, school staff self-care, and the impact of critical incidents in school communities.

Kristen is a highly respected and in-demand presenter on the topics of mental health and wellbeing across all school communities. She has significantly contributed to the synergy between education and mental health, combining her experience as an educator and principal, with her passion for mental health and wellbeing.
