I have been suffering from anxiety and depression since last September when I took on a new role as 2nd in dept in a brand new school. Long story short - I lasted 4 weeks before being signed off with the above after being totally crushed and stripped of my confidence in the last school. I left at Christmas, and started a new role at a new school in January. I can feel myself rapidly spirally downwards again but because I can see the signs now I went straight to the head teacher. I'm pretty set on leaving teaching, andnso wanted to lay my cards out on the table. He has referred me to OH for some counselling and has also allowed me to have an afternoon off every two weeks to have some head space. I can't believe how supportive this school is, yet I still want to leave?! I feel so guilty and disappointed that I'm feeling this way but I just can't get beyond the fact that I simply cannot teach anymore - any advice?
