If you have not already responded to the poll about mental health, we would appreciate your response by the end of this week.

Following on from Emma’s attendance at The Royal Foundation’s Mental Health conference yesterday, some interesting questions arose around the anecdotal increase in frequency and severity of mental health issues presenting in trainee teachers.  The Duchess of Cambridge and her charity’s staff were interested in receiving more quantitative data to support these observations.  In light of this, we would be incredibly grateful if you can take a couple of moments to complete the following poll.

As well as completing the poll, if you have any thoughts, theories or comments on why you may be seeing changes, please make a note of these in the comments section of this blog post.

This is one of those occasions where your voice really could make a difference so please take the opportunity to engage – many thanks in advance for you time.

    We have a very open and transparent community relationship on our SCITT so trainees are able to discuss their feelings safely. We also have our own resident life coach, bookable privately, should they need to talk to someone other than me and our SCITT covers the cost. This hasn’t eradicated mental health issues from our cohorts but we do have the tools and support available when problems arise.
