The NSTU is pleased to welcome
Dr. Stan Kutcher to the NSTU Senator Series

Teaching is challenging at the best of times, but during a pandemic even more so. As educators, we have been asked to focus on our students’ mental health as well as our own. We hear the words stress, anxiety, and burnout often in education circles. Dr. Stan Kutcher will start with what these terms mean and discuss teacher and student mental health during the pandemic in this one hour virtual session.

Dr. Stan Kutcher is a leading psychiatrist and professor who has helped young people successfully manage major mental illnesses. His appointment to the Senate allows him to put his decades of medical, academic and policy expertise at the service of all Canadians.

Dr. Kutcher then became Head of the Psychiatry Department at Dalhousie University followed by appointments as Associate Dean for International Heath and the Sun Life Financial Chair in Adolescent Mental Health. His work has ranged from clinical research to medical education innovations and he has developed and helped deploy innovative school mental health literacy and youth mental health care capacity building programs in primary health care. He has published over 400 articles and authored, co-authored or edited numerous books on various aspects of mental health, including adolescent brain development, psychopharmacology, school mental health and suicide.
