School teachers can experience an enormous amount of pressure and stress with the huge responsibilities placed on their shoulders. Particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, teachers are experiencing more stress and burnout than ever before, not to mention the added pressure of longer work hours, and engaging students via online learning. Teachers are often managing competing demands, and a result tend to prioritise others’ needs and mental health ahead of their own. The wellbeing of teachers must be tended to as a priority, for their own benefit and that of the whole school community.

  • Stress and burnout
  • Sleep problems
  • Decline in work performance
  • Reduced ability to concentrate and make decisions
  • Feeling overwhelmed

  • Anxiety
  • Lack of motivation
  • Increased conflict within relationships
  • Physical symptoms such as headaches and digestive issues
