Introducing Marie Vakakis (she/her)✨
In this episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with Marie Vakakis (she/her), a highly skilled Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, Family Therapist, presenter, podcaster, and trainer. Marie is widely recognised for her expertise in the field of mental health and wellbeing. As a specialist in promoting positive relationships between adults and young people, Marie designs and delivers tailored programs that help educators build emotional intelligence and connect with young people.
Her inspiring talks and podcasts encourage audiences to embrace mental health as an essential part of overall well being, while breaking down the stigma that often surrounds the topic. Marie is passionate about empowering teachers and school communities to facilitate open and productive conversations around mental health and wellbeing, ultimately creating healthier, happier, and more resilient young people.
Marie and I discuss:
* The biggest challenges teens are facing
* The best way for schools and parents to support teens who are in a stage of school refusal
* The signs and symptoms to look for in teens who may be experiencing depression and anxiety
* And much more!
