Being in Education Whilst Suffering Mental Illness
 
13:29
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
 
01:23
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/

BBC Documentary 2016   A World Without Down's Syndrome
 
56:59
Documentary about Down's syndrome and the ethics of pregnancy screening, fronted by Sally Phillips. This film explores the science and thinking around the proposed new screening test for Down's syndrome and its possible availability on the NHS. Driven by the experience of raising her son Olly, who has Down's syndrome, Sally explores some of the ethical implications of our national screening policy. By talking to experts in the Down's syndrome community, the world's top scientists and including people with Down's syndrome in the debate, Sally investigates a thorny subject that begs questions relevant to us all: what sort of world do we want to live in and who do we want in it? Wiki:Down syndrome (DS or DNS), also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all, or part of a third copy of chromosome 21.[1] It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features, and mild to moderate intellectual disability.[2] The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, equivalent to the mental age of an 8- or 9-year-old child, but this can vary widely.[3] The parents of the affected individual are typically genetically normal.[4] The extra chromosome occurs by random chance.[5] The risk increases from less than 0.1% in 20-year-old mothers to 3% in those age 45.[6] There is no known behavioral activity or environmental factor that changes the risk.[5] Down syndrome can be identified during pregnancy by prenatal screening followed by diagnostic testing, or after birth by direct observation and genetic testing.[7] Since the introduction of screening, pregnancies with the diagnosis are often terminated.[8][9] Regular screening for health problems common in Down syndrome is recommended throughout the person's life.[3] There is no cure for Down syndrome.[10] Education and proper care have been shown to improve quality of life.[11] Some children with Down syndrome are educated in typical school classes, while others require more specialized education.[12] Some individuals with Down syndrome graduate from high school and a few attend post-secondary education.[13] In adulthood, about 20% in the United States do paid work in some capacity[14] with many requiring a sheltered work environment.[12] Support in financial and legal matters is often needed.[15] Life expectancy is around 50 to 60 years in the developed world with proper health care.[3][15] Down syndrome is one of the most common chromosome abnormalities in humans.[3] It occurs in about one per 1000 babies born each year.[2] In 2013, Down syndrome was present in 8.5 million individuals and resulted in 36,000 deaths down from 43,000 deaths in 1990.[16][17] It is named after John Langdon Down, the British doctor who fully described the syndrome in 1866.[18] Some aspects of the condition were described earlier by Jean-Étienne Dominique Esquirol in 1838 and Édouard Séguin in 1844.[19] The genetic cause of Down syndrome—an extra copy of chromosome 21—was identified by French researcher Jérôme Lejeune in 1959.[18] More video: https://goo.gl/D9YhLb

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
 
00:57
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

Excellence in Social Enterprise - Affirmative Industries
 
02:46
People living with mental and physical disabilities often have a hard time finding and keeping employment in the community. This is the challenge that gave rise to Affirmative Industries. Formed in 1991, this nonprofit organization assists individuals with mental and physical disabilities to achieve economic independence. To that end, it has created and operates three social enterprises that offer employment and workplace training to clients so they can go on to hold jobs in the community. Affirmative Industries also has a 10 unit apartment building for people with mental illness. All tenants contribute $5-10 monthly to a savings plan that they can eventually draw from for goals such as buying a house or going back to school. Each year, 80 people participate in Affirmative Industries' 12-week comprehensive training program which covers all the bases of finding and keeping employment (e.g., preparing a resume, staying motivated on the job). Training takes place through its social enterprises -- Pet Stuff on the Go, Neighbourhood Dollar Plus and Mort's Convenience -- giving clients hands-on experience in essential skills from handling money to serving customers. To date, Affirmative Industries has maintained a 97% success rate for those who have moved into community paid employment, and clients are earning equal pay for equal work, ensuring them a better quality of life. Affirmative Industries' apartment units have provided safe, affordable housing for people with mental illness, which is essential for engaging in the community and facilitating ongoing treatment. Through the savings plan, which is supported by Affirmative Industries and the Nova Scotia Department of Community services, they are gaining financial literacy and the means to achieve goals and keep moving forward in life. Affirmative Industries also partnered with the Nova Scotia Community College to offer ACEE where students with disabilities have a transition year to explore work options, post-secondary education and volunteers opportunities. And it participated in a CPP-D Pilot Program, serving 11 individuals who had been out of the workplace for many years to help them move toward community employment and/or volunteer opportunities. Affirmative Industries is thought to be the only organization to combine housing and employment in its efforts to serve clients with physical and mental disabilities. It continues to challenge the belief among employers that the work of an individual with physical or mental disabilities is not of equal value in terms of wages. And through the apartment unit savings plan, it is ensuring that people with mental illness not only become financially literate, but also have the means to achieve their goals as their needs and lives change and they gain more independence.

Proactively Supporting Students To and Through College | Lindsay Page | TEDxWilmingtonED
 
16:44
On the pathway to and through college, too many students aren’t succeeding. Each year, large numbers of students who intended to start college stumble in the transition to college, failing to make it even to their first day. Students can also struggle once enrolled. For example, for students from low-income backgrounds who attend college after high school, the most common outcome is participating in some higher education, likely taking on debt, but not earning any degree or credential. In this talk, Lindsay C. Page shares her research on how proactive outreach and support for students can improve their chances of accessing college and succeeding once there. Lindsay C. Page is an assistant professor of research methodology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Education and a research scientist at Pitt’s Learning Research and Development Center. Her work focuses on quantitative methods and their application to questions regarding the effectiveness of educational policies and programs across the pre-school to post-secondary spectrum. Much of her recent work has involved the implementation of large-scale randomized trials to investigate innovative strategies for improving students’ transition to and through college. She holds a doctorate in quantitative policy analysis and master's degrees in statistics and in education policy from Harvard University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Down disease or Down's syndrome bệnh down.Congenital abnormally in children
 
03:17
Down syndrome (DS or DNS) or Down's syndrome, also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features, and mild to moderate intellectual disability. The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, equivalent to the mental age of an 8- or 9-year-old child, but this varies widely.Down syndrome can be identified during followed by diagnostic testing, or after birth by direct observation and genetic testing. Since the introduction of screening, pregnancies with the diagnosis are often terminated.[4][5] Regular screening for health problems common in Down syndrome is recommended throughout the person's life. Education and proper care have been shown to improve quality of life.[6] Some children with Down syndrome are educated in typical school classes, while others require more specialized education.[7] Some individuals with Down syndrome graduate from high school and a few attend post-secondary education.[8] In adulthood, about 20% in the United States do paid work in some capacity[9] with many requiring a sheltered work environment.[7] Support in financial and legal matters is often needed.[10] Life expectancy is around 50 to 60 years in the developed world with proper health care.[3][10] Down syndrome is one of the most common chromosome abnormalities in humans,[3] occurring in about one per 1000 babies born each year.[2] In 2013 it resulted in 36,000 deaths down from 43,000 deaths in 1990.[11] It is named after John Langdon Down, the British doctor who fully described the syndrome in 1866.[12] Some aspects of the condition were described earlier by Jean-Étienne Dominique Esquirol in 1838 and Édouard Séguin in 1844.[13] The genetic cause of Down syndrome—an extra copy of chromosome 21—was identified by French researchers in 1959. Those with Down syndrome nearly always have physical and intellectual disabilities.[14] As adults, their mental abilities are typically similar to those of an 8- or 9-year-old.[3] They also typically have poor immune function[15] and generally reach developmental milestones at a later age.[10] They have an increased risk of a number of other health problems, including congenital heart disease, epilepsy, leukemia, thyroid diseases, and mental disorders, among others.

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
 
00:56
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.

These videos were filmed during the spring, summer, and fall of 2009 in a Medicine Wheel near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. Elder Betty McKenna is Anishnabe and Métis from Shoal River First Nation, Manitoba. The videos were realized by the First Nations University of Canada under the supervision of Dr. Carrie Bourassa and Dr. Fidji Gendron. The videos show different plants during the growing season, how to recognize them, and how they are used by First Nations and Métis people. Plants collected during these walks are now on display in the Medicine Room at the First Nations University of Canada.
