School Workplace Wellness Promotion Programs can save schools money and improve teacher's emotional wellbeing.
Teachers stress and health
Teachers play a critical role in our nation's children, they facilitate learning and influence student's social and emotional development.
Prior to the pandemic, teaching was seen as one of the most stressful occupations in the U.S. High levels of stress were affecting teacher health and well-being, causing teacher burnout, reduced engagement and job satisfaction, poor performance and record high turnover. COVID-19 will further compound the challenges faced by school administrators both during and in the aftermath.
Teacher stress and burnout naturally affects their ability to teach and provide support for their students. This, in turn, negatively impacts student outcomes. A survey of over 78,000 students across 160 schools showed that high teacher engagement correlates with higher levels of student engagement and improved academic achievement.
These findings support the need to reduce stress and improve teacher well-being.

Implementing a workplace emotional wellbeing program has never been easier. Over 8 million people have access to Mindy, which is an evidence based Artificial Intelligence Chatbot. Mindy provides emotional support by having automated chat conversations with people, through text messaging or HIPAA and GDPR compliant instant messaging apps. These chat conversations simply start with "How are you?" and continue in a similar way as a coach or psychologist would. Mindy provides teachers with mental health coping skills, fosters emotional wellbeing and resilience, provides education and connects users.
Easy to deploy
Deploying Mindy is easy. Teachers can access Mindy via the HIPAA secure app MindTrac which is available in both Android and iOS app stores or by simply texting the Mindy phone number. Mindy engages employees in private and secure personalized sessions. Mindy learns employee emotional patterns and engages accordingly.

Users can connect on-demand or schedule a session with a mental health professional from the HealthPort network.
