Newsmaker: Mental health resources available for teachers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Underpaid, understaffed, underfunded, underappreciated: These are just some of the challenges teachers say they face in Tennessee.

Beth Walser, clinical director of the Volunteer Behavioral Health System, joins Nickelle Smith in the News 2 studio with mental health options available for teachers.

“If you’re a teacher and you feel exhausted, that would feel like numbness, robot, mental exhaustion, or just feeling like you don’t want to get out of bed to go to a job you went for. at school and seeing students you like, these are symptoms that should be a cry for help,” Walser said.

Walser says some things teachers can do when they feel burnt out are:

  • Set limits
  • Focus on what you can control
  • Don’t isolate yourself
  • Perform acts of self-care to help refocus
