Female nursery and primary teachers at greater risk of suicide than the average woman!

Stress, workload and exhaustion are the causes for a 42% higher-than-average risk of suicide in female primary teachers (Teachers Union, ATL).

“Female nursery and primary teachers have a significantly higher risk of suicide than the average woman, according to new figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

They are 42 per cent more likely to kill themselves, according to the new data.”

Nansi Ellis, of the ATL teaching union, said: “The statistics give a hard edge to the stories we hear time and again from our members – that they are exhausted from the constant stress of never feeling they are on top of their workload, and that they feel expected to devote every minute of their lives to their work.

“That this toxic mix could be leading to an increase in suicides is a scandal.”

“Education alone will not close attainment gap.” The Thrive Programme will!

“If Scotland is serious about closing the gap, about lifting children out of poverty, ensuring they have every chance to fulfil their potential, all the services involved in improving their lives and life chances must plan and work together in partnership….” The Scotsman

Bounce, the Thrive Programme in Education is in partnership with a growing number of schools in Scotland, England and other countries.

Emetophobia: Hannah is scared of Chicken! You do not have to be.

The BBC News webpage features an article about Hannah Ellis, an emetophobia sufferer. Hannah has suffered for many years. The article mentions various treatments but neglects to mention the most effective one by a long way. The Thrive Programme (Cure your emetophobia and Thrive)

From the article: “Nobody likes being sick. But Hannah Ellis says her fear of vomiting is so intense that “chicken scares me” and she panics if friends or family fall ill. The 19-year-old from Sheffield has emetophobia, a condition affecting thousands people in the UK.
My flatmates are probably wondering why I’m eating pasta and tomato sauce for the fourth evening in a row.
It’s not because I’m skint, the truth is that chicken or the thought of reheating food is terrifying.
My phobia of vomiting – even the word churns my stomach – dictates nearly every aspect of my life.
‘I feel guilty’”
