    Are you taking the report serious?

    The Guardian is well known for preaching doom and gloom from its pulpit. A quick scroll down will show you other reports with extreme language used in their headlines, such as:

    https://www.theguardian.com/society...and-crisis-point-teacher-school-leader-survey

    https://www.theguardian.com/educati...ce-more-stress-than-other-workers-study-shows

    https://www.theguardian.com/society...-england-rejected-for-mental-health-treatment

    https://www.theguardian.com/society...er-uks-intolerable-child-mental-health-crisis

    Pseudo intellectual revolutionary nonsense. Best ignored. Everything is in perpetual crisis according to the Guardian.

    What are everyday stresses and annoyances are being rehashed in the language of therapy/mental health.

    This is 1 in 20 teachers that they know about. It doesn't take into account those who are unable to report their mental health issue due to the stigma and bullying which surrounds it and so have to just walk away.
    I am one of the 1 in 20 and I was sacked for speaking up and asking for help with stress.

    I'll put you down as a "don't know," shall I ?
