Health teachers equal healthy student outcomes. Starling Minds helps educators manage and rehabilitate from stressors they face on the job. Education organizations partner with Starling to improve staff well being, staff morale, and reduce turnover.

Stressors Like:

Increasing behavioral issues and violence — including violence in the classroom and the rising prevalence of mental illness in students

Complicated classroom composition — with responsibility to teach to all learning abilities and levels, and management of multiple individualized learning plans

Declining classroom resources — with less budgetary and professional classroom support for managing the growing diversification in learning styles and behavioral issues

Increasing demands and groups to appease — from parents and students to peers and administration

Growing job insecurity — where collective bargaining periods, funding cuts and looming job action are commonplace
