Get involved in Mental Health Awareness Week

 



Did you know that…

  1. 85% of UK adults are experiencing stress regularly

  2. 1.3 million days have been taken off by teachers for stress and mental health reasons over the last four years

  3. One in 83 teachers are on long-term leave for stress and mental health issues*


Ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week on the 13th – 17th May, we figured it’s the perfect time to remind ISBL members of the FREE wellbeing service customers receive with all policies from The Education Broker. This includes health checks for staff, phone counselling and heaps of online resources. We know that happier and healthier staff don’t just take fewer sick days, but they’re also able to give their role more focus on creating a happy and fun environment for children to learn in.  Find out more here.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter (@Edu_Broker) and LinkedIn next week for all of our mental health awareness content - from facts and figures to useful articles about managing stress. And, we’ll be holding a competition to win a pamper basket!
