Our mental health toolkit

The intense demands and pressures of working in education have been compounded by the coronavirus pandemic. Long hours, stress and emotional strain are commonplace amongst teachers, support staff and education leaders, who regularly find themselves going the extra mile to meet the increasing challenges of education in a Covid-19-affected world.

Not surprisingly this is having an impact on the wellbeing of staff, and half of education professionals report their mental health being affected by the pandemic.

To support you and your staff during this challenging time, we’ve created a mental health toolkit containing resources useful for teachers, support staff and others working in schools.

Our mental health toolkit contains the following resources:

  • Mental health in education infographic
  • Mental health staff survey
  • Anxiety in education insight
  • 5 books to help with mindfulness
