Mental arithmetic: Hannah devil’s and mental arithmetic
Hannah Devil’s, one of Melbourne’s leading math teachers, has launched a new online video series with Hannah’s mental arithmetic and mental maths lessons.
The series, which will be available in February, is a collaboration between the school, the Mental Health Foundation, the Victorian Department of Education and the Department of Mental Health and Development.
It will also offer a series of online lessons.
“This is an opportunity for young people to learn mental arithmetic on a regular basis and we think it’s important that young people can do this,” Ms Devil’s said.
“We think that we can teach mental arithmetic as well as other maths.”
Ms Devil said the Mental Heath Foundation and the Victorian Government were working together to promote mental health education and mental wellbeing.
“The Mental Health Victoria team have been working with us to deliver the Mental Illness Information Service, which we believe can play a major role in helping people who suffer from mental health to understand how to recognise and manage mental health issues,” Ms Satan said.
Ms Devil and Ms Devil will continue to work together with Mental Health Minister David Davis, and the Australian Government.
“Mental illness is one of the most common mental health problems in Australia,” Ms Davis said.
“This is not just a young person problem, it’s a young people problem as well.”
Mental Health Australia chief executive David Williams said young people were not always able to get the mental skills needed to deal with mental health challenges.
“Young people in particular are often under-served in mental health services because of the difficulty they may have navigating a variety of services, including services for mental health,” Mr Williams said.
Mr Williams warned against the dangers of a “bias” mentality in schools.
“There is a real danger in the current mental health environment that students are being pushed into a false dichotomy, that they’re being given a false choice between two different therapies,” Mr Wilson said.
