At Aspire People we understand many people within schools may face challenges and battle with mental health issues due to many factors within the schools they work in, which then can have a knock on affect not only within schools but relationships with people outside of the school environment.
Being an educator means you have many responsibilities and over time these issues could develop and overwhelm you. As a teacher you may be guilty of ignoring stresses you are facing in or outside of the classroom for the sake of your students, however we know this is not a good way to cope with your battles.
By speaking to teachers, we understand that some stresses within your school life can be Ofsted, new lessons or new students and parents evening. We know this by speaking to multiple teachers, meaning you aren’t alone in this battle.
Aspire People have partnered with the Education Show, sister company to the Education Awards which is an event celebrating educators in the Midlands. The director Jas Rohal has teamed up with Suneta Bagri a mindset and wellbeing coach to discuss the issues around mental health in schools, specifically teachers and how we can tackle these issues.
