Apologies if this is not allowed here - Recently I've gone through a rough time with work and stuff which has severely affected my mental health. I'm not hiding from it nor am I ashamed of it. It happens. What's more important is what we do with it. I want to build a community that can support people, starting with teachers or ex-teachers. I was wondering if anyone on here would be willing to (privately) share stories of mental health issues either in the profession or reasons for leaving with me and what your road to recovery and outcomes looked like. I know for some this is hard, but not only have I found it therapeutic but also feel that it may be able to help others. Please get in touch if you want to help.
