Section 1 of our Mental Health in Education Training - Working in the education sector

Over three-quarters of education professionals feel they don't have enough guidance or support at work to manage their own mental health. In this section, we get introduced to Mental Health within the Education sector and raises the importance of mental health training and the common triggers of poor mental health. 

Section 2 of our Mental Health in Care Training - Mental health problems brought to life by visual characters

In this section, we’ll be raising awareness of common mental health problems, particularly anxiety and depression. But we’ll also be looking at how stress and loneliness can have a big influence on your mental health.  If you’re interested in learning more, this section also has extra information on a small number of the other common mental illnesses!

Section 3 of our Mental Health in Care Training - A wellbeing toolkit

This section is your Wellbeing Toolkit that can help you look after your mental health on a daily basis. We appreciate that everyone has their own ideas about how to approach their mental health and wellbeing, so this section has a variety of insights, mini exercises, recommendations and some food for thought so you can use what suits you.

Section 4 of our Mental Health in Care Training - External resources

If your wellbeing is becoming a top priority for you, and you feel like you need extra support, there’s plenty of avenues you can go down - or even suggest to your family, friends and colleagues if they need some guidance. This section provides some useful external resources that you may wish to use to aid your wellbeing.

About this course

Sadly, 67% of teachers and other education professionals describe themselves as stressed. This statistic only worsens when you consider that 74% of education professionals consider they do not have enough guidance about mental health and wellbeing at work.

The education sector can be a particularly demanding industry, which can have a detrimental effect on employee wellbeing. In fact, almost 30% of teachers work more than 51 hours a week, on average.

Teachers and other education professionals are at breaking point and wellbeing needs to be pushed way up the agenda. Our Mental Health Awareness Training for Education is broken down into 4 easy-to-follow and beautifully animated sections which aim to educate learners on the various types of mental health problems, the science behind our thinking, and where to go to for external help. The course is suitable for anybody working in the education sector.

An excellent learning package

This course provides all you need without being overly long or too preachy. It allows you the space to think about Mental Health and certainly impaired my own awareness of what it is. It is supportive and offers guidance for routes you might choose to take rather than telling you what to do.

The slides and videos were very clear

The style of presentation was supportive. There were resources to follow up with if you want to.

Informative and useful

I rated with 5 is good for the following reasons: - The material very well prepared by having important features such as 1)transcript what has been said;2) options for subtitles in a different languages for not native English speakers; 3) there are extra sources to expand knowledge on existing material; - all the material has been carefully chosen. Thank you

Much more useful than I was expecting ..

I was sceptical about the course itself as I feel that I am already aware of mental health issues and pay a lot of attention to my own, but I actually found it quite useful as a parent of a child who struggles with anxiety. Although I feel that I understand my child's needs quite well, I think that she would find some of the advice in the video to be very relatable and it would help her to feel more in control of her own mental health. For me therefore, the real value in this video is that it provides me with tools and tips that will help me to support colleagues / students / friends / loved ones who are struggling with their mental health.

Good material but delivery causes stress

There is no way to advance through material already known. The pace for many sections is painfully slow, which aftre a while is stressful.The having to click the mouse every 45 seconds or so in places, sometimes more often to advance the material is draining and demoralising. It borders on infantilisation of the trainee, and the lack of trust implicit is heavily disempowering and disengaging. The tests are almost box ticking exercises, which are very easy to take, I think they are too easy. And the weekly nagging email to complete, timed for Monday Morning, is disrespectful to staff.This training discriminates against neurodiverse members of staff. There is no reason to treat intelligent, professional people like this, or indeed anyone who deserves workplace dignity, which is everyone.As well as stress from the unecessarily slow pace of this, the temptation to multitask and click the mouse every so often will be tremendous. Many will simply ignore the video material after a while and click through.There is no option to view the training as written material. I am convinced that were we forcing our students to endure this we would not consider it to be UDL compliant.The Mental Health in Education is ironically the most irksome section, at one point it even tells us to 'never forget to drink water'. That's not cherrypicking either, much of the material is similarly superluous. The advice given on wellbeing in the workplace is ignored by the same training.

Good material but delivery causes stress

It's unfortunate to have to give such a low rating for nice material, but the delivery format is repetitive, stressful, and disempowering. This is because video content is only given in bite size content, and the emphasis becomes clicking on rather than absorbing. Some concepts are explained rather too slowly, which is frustrating. An option to read all of the content would be terrific, especially for academics, some of us read in detail and quickly, and notably for neurodiverse. There isn't any point running material this slowly with all of the frequent checks, and it would be easier to focus on it if we felt respected and trusted.

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

Many teachers and other education professionals are at breaking point - 67% of them describe themselves as stressed. This training course can go a long way in spreading awareness of mental-ill health in the education sector and could spark a much-needed, potentially life-saving conversation for someone who is struggling with their mental health.
