Working in education can be tough! Three in five people working in education say their work performance has suffered as a result of mental health problems, such as anxiety, stress or depression.   Haydon School subscribes to the Employee Assistance Programme which is available 24 hour a day, 365 days a year, is completely confidential and provides support by telephone or online from specialist counsellors who understand the demands of working in education. It provides: emotional support and counselling, specialist information on work-life balance, financial and legal information, management consultation to support those responsible for managing others, up to six sessions of face-to-face or telephone counselling, access to online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and information on local services such as elder care and childcare. Experts will assess each call individually and decide what the best course of action for each caller is, whether that be counselling, online CBT or signposting to additional services.
