Shared Experiences: What it's Like to Teach in a Pandemic

Featured Image

Brought to you by real people with real stories, our Shared Experiences series shines light on the mental health struggles we all commonly face. 1 in 5 people experience a mental illness in a given year and by the time someone reaches 40, the prevalence is 1 in 2 and many don't reach out for help. At MindBeacon, we strive to change that. Care to share your story and help others remember they're not alone? Reach out to community@mindbeacon.com to play your part in removing the stigma. 

Being in lockdown and not being able to visit anyone, go anywhere, or do anything is challenging for anyone. Teachers have faced their own unique struggles too and that's why we took some time to speak to Chad, a Gr. 7 teacher who's been teaching remotely and in-person over the past year. He spoke to us about the impact the pandemic has had on his own mental health and those around him, including his students. He also shares his thoughts on the barriers faced when it comes to seeking help for mental health.
