Duration: 40 Minutes

In a recent survey, 67% of education professionals describe themselves as being stressed and 74% consider that they do not have enough guidance about mental health and wellbeing at work.

The education sector is a particularly demanding workplace and this can have detrimental effects on employee wellbeing and therefore staffing levels and the quality of teaching.

Being the dedicated type of people that they are, people working in education can be at breaking point before owning up to problems, or before anyone spots one.

This course, designed specifically for educational professionals, is broken down into easy-to-follow sections which aim to educate participants on the various types of mental health problems, the science behind them and where to go to for external help.
