About Us: Schools have a critical role in fostering the health and safety of young people and helping them establish lifelong healthy behaviors. As the community begins to acknowledge the limited emphasis on educator and student mental health, many educators continue to be confronted with a general feeling of being overwhelmed to facing burnout. According to Psychology Today, burnout is described as “a state of chronic stress that leads to physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism, detachment, and feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.” The emotional atmosphere in a classroom setting impacts the experiences of all students. That atmosphere is affected by the emotional stability of the teacher.
Erica supports and equips educators on all levels who are challenged with maintaining a sense of balance between providing a service to meet the needs of their students and living a mentally, emotionally and physically healthy lifestyle.
Teaching with Mental Health in Mind is on Facebook and Instagram to provide support and resources for educators.
Current services include: Counseling, Speaking/Training and Consulting
