This unit explores positive psychology and wellbeing education for the enhancement of both student and staff wellbeing. We look at the larger context of teacher burnout and the high rates of mental health issues and suicide ideation in students. Wellbeing school initiatives, such as positive education, values education, and various mental health programs, are investigated with a view of developing a personal philosophy and pedagogy based upon evidence-based best practice.
