Description

My research project is a self-study on how mental health can affect one’s teaching practices. I have looked into the following four themes: types of mental health disorders and how they are diagnosed, the stigma surrounding mental health, personal battles with mental illnesses/disorders, and strategies to cope with mental health. I have focused on comparing the media’s stigma surrounding mental health and how it affects whether people seek help and support. I have also focused on finding strategies to help not only teachers, but also students cope with their mental illness. The purpose of this self-study is to further develop my knowledge of mental health. My personal battles with mental health will aid me in understanding the struggles my students may face and it will make me a better advocate. In conclusion, all of my research supports my efforts in breaking the stigma that encircles mental health.
