Join us in a stress management training to learn about stress reduction and gain mental-health-friendly activities to help yourself and your classroom recharge, boost mood, and increase productivity at school and at home.
Our work and school days are filled with multitasking and increasing emphasis on efficiency and productivity. Nearly half of all teachers say they experience a high level of stress daily, and it is not hard to understand why. This stress can impede on daily life at home and in the classroom, and new studies suggest that staff stress affects students as well. Chronic stress triggers a range of physical and mental health symptoms and with all that educators do, stress management and self-care can quickly become an afterthought. Discussing stress and mental health in the workplace can be difficult, but the benefits are worth the effort.
Stephanie Parenti is the Population Health Coordinator, HealthlinkNY. This training is sponsored by Rockland Teachers' Center and the Rockland County School Health and Wellness Coalition.
