We understand teaching can be a very stressful profession, leading to long term sick leave and a drop in productivity. Last year a YouGov Survey (1) revealed 75% of teachers in the UK are reporting symptoms of stress – including depression, anxiety and panic attacks.
The NHS reports Positive Psychology as the ‘science of happiness’. Many studies are finding that how we ‘think and act’ can impact significantly on our happiness, which in turn affects our ability to deal with stress and succeed at work.
This is why the School Mental Health Group have developed a 1-hour webinar training session ‘Raising Happiness and Productivity for Teachers‘ which may enable your staff to design, develop and deliver their own ‘stress relief and happiness formula’.
