Support for teachers is more important than ever

Hi Unsilence Supporter,
POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH
As the pandemic continues, the levels of anxiety, depression, and suicide ideation amongst young people are much higher than they usually are. As we head into summer, some teachers and communities are preparing for a return to in-person learning, while many students will remain isolated at home.
UNSILENCE IS TRAINING EDUCATORS
Training and support for educators and the promotion of positive mental health are more important than ever. Which is, at Unsilence, we are preparing to run summer trainings that will help teachers and informal educators explore how best to support their students to have difficult conversations, including conversations about mental health and 'personal silencing.'
Our interactive feature TOMORROW helps educators explore how to respond to a student suicide:
 
"Our individual life experiences and choices can keep stories hidden. Being vulnerable is really hard. Personal Silencing is driven by a range of emotions that can include individual shame, awkwardness, discomfort, and embarrassment. People often silence themselves because they fear the consequences of talking openly, including a fear of sounding ignorant, a fear of offending others, a fear of getting in trouble, or even a fear of causing more pain."
 
SUPPORT UNSILENCE
Please continue to support our work. Without you, we would not be able to create and deliver innovative programs - driven by storytelling, the arts, and serious games - that unsilence injustice. If you'd like to continue supporting our TOMORROW initiative, you can donate right here.
 
With sincere gratitude.
