Being in Education Whilst Suffering Mental Illness
Something that I meant to mention in my video but completely forgot to is that you can go to college or University at any age. When I got poorly I was so worried about being behind but it really isn't an issue. Even if you're unwell at the moment, you can do everything in the future when you're better! This ties in nicely with the whole 'take a step back' point that I made. Take things at your own pace to help maintain wellness and also achieve the best results you can. I'm sorry that I was a bit all over the place in this video. When sat in front of the camera my ability to construct sentences seems to go a bit. Haha.

I am not OK — An in-depth investigation into student mental health issues
There is a crisis on this campus. Hector knows about it. So does Garrett. So do Rebecca and Shrutika and Alexa. They are five of the potentially thousands of Niagara College students whose lives are affected by mental health issues. This is no anomaly. Statistics suggest there are more than 400,000 post-secondary students across Canada struggling with mental health disorders. In your classrooms, on the bus to school in the morning, in the hallways of your campus, you are surrounded by people touched by this crisis. Two months ago, Niagara News got the results of a 2016 mental health survey involving 25,000 Ontario college and university students. The findings stunned us. We reached out to students, mental health professionals, professors and politicians to paint a clearer picture of the pervasiveness and impact of the mental health crisis sweeping Canada’s campuses. This is the story of those who feel lonely in a crowd and those who mask inner turmoil with a smiling face. This is the story of your family, your friends, your classmates and those you love. This is the story of a crisis on campus. Learn more at http://www.iamnotOK.ca/

How Colleges Are Wasting Our Money and Failing Our Kids---and What We Can Do About It (2010)
Higher education is an educational level that follows a completion of a school providing a secondary education, such as a high school, secondary school, or gymnasium. Tertiary education is normally taken to include undergraduate and postgraduate education, as well as vocational education and training. Colleges, universities, and institutes of technology are the main institutions that provide tertiary education (sometimes known collectively as tertiary institutions). Examples of institutions that provide post-secondary education are vocational schools, community colleges, independent colleges (e.g. institutes of technology), and universities in the United States, the institutes of technical and further education in Australia, pre-university colleges in Quebec, and the IEKs in Greece. They are sometimes known collectively as tertiary institutions. Completion of a tertiary education program of study generally results in the awarding of certificates, diplomas, or academic degrees. Rupert I founded the University of Heidelberg in 1386 Higher education includes teaching, research, exacting applied work (e.g. in medical schools and dental schools), and social services activities of universities. Within the realm of teaching, it includes both the undergraduate level, and beyond that, graduate-level (or postgraduate level). The latter level of education is often referred to as graduate school, especially in North America. In many developed countries, a high proportion of the population (up to 50%), now enter higher education at some time in their lives. Higher education is therefore very important to national economies, both as a significant industry in its own right and as a source of trained and educated personnel for the rest of the economy. College educated workers command a significant wage premium and are much less likely to become unemployed than less educated workers.[1][2] There are two types of higher education in the U.K.: higher academic education, and higher vocational education. Higher education in the United States and Canada specifically refers to post-secondary institutions that offer Associate's degrees, Bachelor's degrees, Master's degrees, Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degrees or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees, or their equivalents, and also higher professional degrees in areas such as law, medicine, optometry, and dentistry. Such institutions may also offer non-degree certificates, which indicate completion of a set of courses comprising a body of knowledge on a particular topic, but the granting of such certificates is not the primary purpose of the institutions. Tertiary education is not a term used in reference to post-secondary institutions in the United States or Canada. The general higher education and training that takes place in a university, college, or Institute of Technology usually includes significant theoretical and abstract elements, as well as applied aspects (although limited offerings of internships or SURF programs attempt to provide practical applications). In contrast, the vocational higher education and training that takes place at vocational universities and schools usually concentrates on practical applications, with very little theory. In addition, professional-level education is always included within Higher Education, and usually in graduate schools, since many postgraduate academic disciplines are both vocationally, professionally, and theoretically/research oriented, such as in the law, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. A basic requirement for entry into these graduate-level programs is almost always a bachelor's degree. Requirements for admission to such high-level graduate programs is extremely competitive, and admitted students are expected to perform well. Mean financial wealth of U.S. families by education of the head of household, 1989-2010 Mean income of U.S. families by education of the head of household, 1989-2010 In the United States, there are large differences in wages and employment associated with different degrees. Medical doctors and lawyers are generally the highest paid workers, and have among the lowest unemployment rates. Among undergraduate fields of study, science, technology, engineering, math, and business generally offer the highest wages and best chances of employment, while education, communication, and liberal arts degrees generally offer lower wages and a lower likelihood of employment. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higher_education

In the Darkness l The MINDS Foundation
In India, there are three primary barriers to mental health care: (1) accessibility, (2) economic stress, and (3) social stigma. Individuals suffering from mental illness, particularly those living in rural regions outside of major cities, often have limited access to medical professionals, facilities, and resources due to transportation and accessibility problems. In India, there is only 1 psychiatrist for every 300,000 citizens. When such individuals actually reach professional care, they are often unable to afford the long-term counseling and medication treatment necessary to care for mental illness. And in addition, these individuals often face social stigma in their own community--typically due to a lack of comprehension of mental illness--that may discourage them from seeking treatment even when it is available and economically feasible. Currently, top-down, homogeneous health interventions often fail in implementation and sustainability in such contexts -- failing to connect with such complex 'collisions' of adversity. The MINDS Foundation is committed to a grassroots holistic approach to eliminate stigma and provide high-quality, cost-effective mental healthcare in every corner of the rural world.

Megan Davies - History in Practice: Community-Informed Mental Health Curriculum
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Nursing. Five decades ago, the Canadian mental health system was turned inside out. Nearly 50, 000 beds were closed in aging provincial asylums, with patients following a new regime of short hospital stays, psychiatric drugs and community services. History in Practice uses the power of education to foster professional and caring attitudes and values in mental health services and to improve the capacity of these services to understand client well-being as related to the whole person, with a history, opinions, and talents and located in a social, economic and political environment. To this aim, researchers worked alongside community experts -- people who have received mental health services -- to create a diverse set of engaging and intelligent teaching resources for use in post-secondary environments.

Educational, Vocational, and School Counselors CareerSearch.com
Career Search Counselors assist people with personal, family, educational, mental health, and career problems. Their duties vary greatly depending on their occupational specialty, which is determined by the setting in which they work and the population they serve. Educational, vocational, and school counselors provide individuals and groups with career and educational counseling. School counselors assist students of all levels, from elementary school to postsecondary education. They advocate for students and work with other individuals and organizations to promote the academic, career, personal, and social development of children and youth. School counselors help students evaluate their abilities, interests, talents, and personalities to develop realistic academic and career goals. Counselors use interviews, counseling sessions, interest and aptitude assessment tests, and other methods to evaluate and advise students. They also operate career information centers and career education programs. Often, counselors work with students who have academic and social development problems or other special needs. Elementary school counselors observe children during classroom and play activities and confer with their teachers and parents to evaluate the childrens strengths, problems, or special needs. In conjunction with teachers and administrators, they make sure that the curriculum addresses both the academic and the developmental needs of students. Elementary school counselors do less vocational and academic counseling than high school counselors. High school counselors advise students regarding college majors, admission requirements, entrance exams, financial aid, trade or technical schools, and apprenticeship programs. They help students develop job search skills, such as resume writing and interviewing techniques. College career planning and placement counselors assist alumni or students with career development and job-hunting techniques. The Work environment. Work environment can vary greatly depending on occupational specialty. School counselors work predominantly in schools, where they usually have an office but also may work in classrooms. Other counselors may work in a private practice, community health organization, or hospital. Many counselors work in an office where they see clients throughout the day. Because privacy is essential for confidential and frank discussions with clients, counselors usually have private offices. The work schedules of counselors depend on occupational specialty and work setting. Some school counselors work the traditional 9- to 10-month school year with a 2- to 3-month vacation, but increasing numbers, are employed on 11-month or full-year contracts, particularly those working in middle and high schools. They usually work the same hours as teachers, but they may travel more frequently to attend conferences and conventions. College career planning and placement counselors work long and irregular hours during student recruiting periods. Rehabilitation counselors usually work a standard 40-hour week. Self-employed counselors and those working in mental health and community agencies, such as substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselors, frequently work evenings to counsel clients who work during the day. Both mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists also often work flexible hours to accommodate families in crisis or working couples who must have evening or weekend appointments. Median annual earnings of wage and salary educational, vocational, and school counselors in May 2006 were $47,530. The middle 50 percent earned between $36,120 and $60,990. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $27,240, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $75,920. School counselors can earn additional income working summers in the school system or in other jobs. CareerSearch.com

Mental Health Care: Fighting Stigma with Social Support - Panel Discussion - CGI U 2016
Mental Health Care: Fighting Stigma with Social Support Public Health CGI is partnering with Refinery29 to address the topic of mental health. The number of young Americans affected by mental illness has increased 35-fold since 1990. Despite progress in the diagnosis and drug-based treatment of mental health disorders, more needs to be done to reduce the stigma of mental illness and strengthen the social support systems that are critical for effective treatment. While individuals in some cultures believe that mental illness is caused by supernatural forces, for others the subject is simply taboo, and these beliefs increase prejudice against those suffering with mental health problems. However, young people are leading the way in combating this stigma through self-expression and by strengthening support systems, and they are harnessing both social media and offline networks as powerful tools to share their own struggles and destigmatize mental health issues. In this session moderated by Refinery29 Health and Wellness Director, Anna Maltby, panelists, students, and civil society stakeholders will explore how to: • Understand and reduce stigma associated with mental illnesses around the world. • Develop programs to increase access to mental health care on college campuses. • Expand effective social media platforms and social support systems for mental health challenges. MODERATOR: Anna Maltby, Director of Health and Wellness, Refinery29 PARTICIPANTS: Khaliya, Co-Founder, Falkora Lauren Carson, Founder and Executive Director, Black Girls Smile Inc. Kimberly Wayne, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Seneca Family of Agencies
