In case you missed it: Part I of the HCaP Wellness Series
Part 1: What is mental health, getting past stigma, common mental health problems- signs and symptoms, understanding the stress-disease connection
Mental health and wellbeing are critically important to the success of the higher education workplace. However, many in academia- faculty, staff, and students alike- experience stress, fatigue, reduced motivation, difficulty concentrating, and burnout. This 3-part workshop series featuring nationally-renowned speaker Kyle Davies of Wales, UK, will help individuals to gain a deeper understanding of their own innate resiliencies and ability to access their ‘flow’- presence, peace, and feelings of wellbeing regardless of circumstances. Resiliency-building in this manner translates to greater motivation and insight to change workplace culture and to handle large workloads effectively and with greater ease.
Kyle Davies is a chartered occupational psychologist, executive coach, therapist, author, and trainer. Working with both individuals and organizations, he specializes in optimizing personal resilience, mental clarity, wellbeing, motivation, creativity, and leadership. He is author of “The Intelligent Body”, which has helped many to recover from stress/work burnout and accompanying mental and physical health conditions.
