We’re proud to announce that we’ve partnered with Mindful Me Health & Well-Being Ltd to tackle academia’s mental health crisis and support schools in improving mental health and emotional health and well-being.

Mindful Me Health and Well-Being Ltd is a Yorkshire based company offering an exciting, fresh approach to delivering empowering mindfulness programmes to alleviate the negative effects of stress and improve emotional health and well-being.

Led by qualified mindfulness teacher, Bernie Leonard – the company have the experience and expertise to support school staff and even students on a transformational journey.

Bernie is an outstanding practitioner, with qualifications in Psychology (BSc), Education (PGCEs Post and Pre-16) and Mindfulness (MCBTL, MYHE, IMCPP).

She has also worked in partnership with a range of businesses, education providers and individuals and has a track record of achieving positive outcomes.

Mindful Me Health & Well-Being Ltd can bring their services to you and offer a number of flexible courses to suit any schedule including bite-size lunch time sessions, morning or afternoon sessions, after school or evening twilight.

Courses can even be adapted for NQTs, Middle and Senior Leaders, Parents and Governors, Post 16 students and targeted groups of borderline Y11s.

Research done by YouGov  and commissioned by the charity Education Support Partnership, revealed that three quarters (75%) of 1,250 school and college staff and leaders surveyed said they had experienced psychological, physical or behavioural symptoms  because of work and of this group, workload and work-life balance were cited as the top work-related reasons.

Within the education profession, many have experienced a variety of symptoms in the last two years; Almost one in five (19%) said they had experienced panic attacks, over half (56%) had suffered from insomnia and difficulties sleeping and over a third (41%) had experienced difficulty concentrating.

Stress amongst teachers and students in the UK is at an all-time high and staff absenteeism, due to stress related illnesses, is costing the country billions of pounds every year and depriving young people of the best possible start in life.

We take emotional health and well-being seriously, as an education recruitment company we understand it is our duty to ensure our educators have the support they need to stay healthy and this why we value this new partnership and what it will do for our client schools and teachers everywhere.

As part of our partnership, we offer funding for empowering programmes for the education sector. If your school is or becomes a client of The Education Network, we can cover all or part of the costs of the bespoke Mindful Me Health & Well-Being Ltd Mindfulness six-week programme.
