TSC Has issued a circular to all Subcounty directors and teachers.
This circular reads as follows:
TO: ALL TSC SUB COUNTY DIRECTORS – EMC ALL HEADS OF INSTITUTIONS – EMC
DATE: 2 ND SEPTEMBER, 2022
RE: TEACHERS MENTAL HEALTH SENSITIZATION VIA WEBINARS
The advocacy to promote mental health and prevent mental health disorders is a clear priority for the Commission, hence the need to provide and implement strategies towards mitigating its adverse effects at the Commission and the society at large.
It is against this background that TSC Wellness section deliberated on mental health issues and came up with a proposed action plan which will involve mental health advocacy programs for teachers.
The activities include webinars on a weekly basis which will enable the Commission to reach the 47 counties by December, 2022.
This is a great opportunity in promotion, prevention and management of mental health among TSC employees, in line with the World Health Organization commemoration of International days on mental health thematics, more so the upcoming suicide prevention day and world health day.
Attached find the proposed action plan för the T SC Mental Health.
All TSC Sub County Directors and Heads of Institutions are asked to ensure this information is communicated to the teachers.
