We are the only UK charity dedicated to the mental health and wellbeing of education staff in schools, colleges and universities. We support individuals in crisis through our counselling helpline and financial grants. We also work with school leaders to improve workplace culture and work with policymakers to improve the education system.
Our 2019 research report, the Teacher Wellbeing Index, revealed that 72% of all educational professionals described themselves as stressed. Our helpline hears from two callers a day who are clinically assessed as being at risk of suicide. With the added pressures of the coronavirus pandemic, we are needed now more than ever.
