With World Mental Health Day falling on 10 October each year, and this year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health on 'mental health for all', we take a look at how you can support the wellbeing of yourself and your learners.
As a teacher, trainer or leader, often you will be supporting the mental health and wellbeing of your learners and staff, but it is just as important to look after your own mental health. We know that sometimes that is easier said than done—and that the sheer volume of advise and tools can be overwhelming.
Whether it is coping with the demands of your role, or the changes to teaching practices because of Covid-19, we have highlighted some key tools you can access to support your own wellbeing. Whether you seek support in shared experiences, you reach out to others, or practise mindfulness exercises in your classroom or at home, it is never too late to prioritise self-care during your working week.
You can also access a range of tools and resources supporting mental health and wellbeing across the SET and ETF website:
