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.
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!
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.
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.

Interesting, I though I had a good understanding of aspects of mental health but it covered aspects I was not aware of.
Well presented course
An important reminder that I must look after my mental health, and ideas as to how I can look after my needs and my physical and emotional wellbeing.
Excellent course, well worth doing for a

Good, but no reference afterwards
Male and female video presenters were easy to understand and digest, with cartoon graphics for impact and variety. However, I would have liked a downloadable copy of the information to keep (eg a 4 side summary printout) for future reference/revision as a file or hard copy. Though it is possible to see/print the video transcripts, it is only for a small chunk at a time - can't get whole thing in one go with an appropriate layout. Perhaps it could be included in future (maybe only accessible once you have played the videos and done the quiz?). Similarly, the many 'extra info' references in text format were each very short but there's no way of getting them all in one go, so I only clicked on a couple and hence didn't learn as much as I could have. I am old school and prefer notes that I can highlight/annotate during or after the course.
Informative and easy to digest

Nice basics such as belly breathing and looking for signs
Good but too long
It is good to think about but the course was too long. Too much repetition in the first sections.
