Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Mental Health Awareness Week was started 21 years ago by the Mental Health Foundation as a way of raising awareness and reducing the stigma of mental health issues. Good mental health is vital for successful teaching, learning and all other aspects of your life.

We are committed to supporting the good mental health of our candidates, colleagues and employees and do so in a number of ways. We’ve partnered with Education Support to offer various benefits to teachers and support staff. Education Support is a charity that works with teachers to promote the benefits of great mental health. They also offer a 24-hour helpline for teachers in need – find out more details about Education and our partnership with them here!

Teacher CPD For Mental Health

Your CPD should include aspects that focus on mental health. As a teacher, you’ll be supporting young people with varying mental health needs and issues. Making yourself as knowledgeable as possible about the signs, causes and support available for everyone in education is a fantastic focus.

As part of our latest partnership with Creative Education, all our candidates have free-forever access to their full library of CPD courses. We’ve picked out some of the top mental health and wellbeing and shared them below – but make sure you explore all the courses on offer.
