Dr. Andrew Miki Discusses Teacher Mental Health Trends with a Canadian Education Union

Sean Hougan | July 10, 2019

How do unions and education leaders help teachers succeed at work? Above all, what are the current teacher mental health trends educators need to know to manage their stressors?

Dr. Andrew Miki, is the founder of Starling Minds. For 10+ years, he has worked with hundreds of educators for their mental health. Based on his practice, teachers often struggle with their mental health due to work stressors. But teachers can lower levels of burnout, disability, and absenteeism with the right treatment. For instance, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) would be a great fit.

Miki explains, “Much of the work I do with teachers requires homework on their part. About 5 years ago, I realized that everything I teach in sessions can be self-taught. In particular, teachers have a great ability to learn and apply cognitive behavioral strategies to keep themselves mentally healthy.”

At Starling Minds, we believe that healthy teachers equal healthy classrooms, which result in healthy student outcomes. When teachers are mentally well, everyone wins.

In this podcast, join Dr. Andrew Miki to learn about the struggles teachers face throughout the school year.

Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers first launched Starling Minds in October 2016 to union members and their families. According to our data, 75% of QPAT members who use Starling’s online CBT programs report reduced levels in stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms.
