  •  

    Huh, my partner is a teacher with Education QLD and their email doesn't work.

    doesn't include uni academics I think for Australia, UK and Canada

    •  

      This makes me sad. Us uni academics need it bigtime, maybe they trust that we've done the research on how beneficial meditation is and so we are willing to pay for it.

    •  

      Correct, Tertiary is currently not included. Hoping it changes!

      If you are a primary or secondary educator in the UK, Canada, or Australia…

    Thanks for this, am currently using the 3 month trial of Headspace and have found it helpful. Will pass on to the rest of our school staff.

    This is great! Thanks for posting.

    I've passed this on to my colleagues and HR at my school (the irony being most of my mental stresses come from my colleagues and HR…)

    Shame not factoring in the most undervalued teachers we have in preschool as part of these programs. K-12 is great but early learning teachers are just as vital.

      Why is this comment getting downvoted?

        Thanks for demonstrating why Australia is falling behind. If you engage children early enough you can teach them all kinds of things in simplified form.

        Languages are actually better learnt the younger you are.

        And have you ever had to look after a dozen infants who weren't toilet trained?

        Regardless of whether this is true or not.. you go try babysitting 30 kids and let me know if Headspace might be beneficial.

    This is perfect! Thank you OP. Passing this on to all the teachers I know.

    Would have thought doctors/nurses/emergency services who have a far higher rate of suicide and see far more traumatic events should be included.

    •  

      They would have even better free psychological care offered to them.

        Youd think so wouldn't you…

      •  

        That's news to me.

    A brief description of what this is would be helpful. Seems to be a meditation and lifestyle app. Is it targeted at teachers, or is it just the offer that is? How much is a subscription normally?

    Edit: If they ask for your credit card or Paypal, RUN.

      Ozbargain: The truth shall be downvoted.

      It is entirely appropriate to warn that others have had issues with unexpected charges, yet others question the usefulness of this, and ask what the actual saving is.

    There is also the Smiling Mind app as an alternative, which is free for everyone and created by Australian psychologists and educators

  •  

    Got my code earlier, its for a 1 year subscription only which I guess is what they mean by annual. Might be worth updating the title.

  •  

    Works if you have a Working with Children Check Card.
    I’m not a registered educator, I used a personal email address (not a edu.vic.giv etc.). Listed my kids school and it worked.

    •  

      Is that the only document you supplied? Also i have WWC check number but can't find any actual document that i could upload.

      •  

        Yes, it was the only document.

      •  

        I worked it out - so for others:

        I signed up using my regular email and said i worked at to a school in my area. I provided the WWC form that i found had been emailed to me. My approval came through in about 45 minutes. Cheers.

    I'm not a teacher but I'm spreading this as far and wide as I can! Thanks OP!
