Out of 30 people on my training course last year at least 5 of us are now experiencing some sort of mental health problem. 3 months into our NQT year! I find this both staggering and disgusting. On the other end of the spectrum, a very experienced and well respected teacher I know is also suffering from depression. I know he won't be the only one. Suppose I was just wondering if people think this situation will change or if higher rates of mental illness are just expected as a norm in this profession.
