Event description

Description

Mental health is a big deal, and one of the largest segments of our population overlooked when it comes to mental health is educators. USA Today wrote it about here. 58% of educators say their mental health is "not good" for seven or more of the previous 30 days. Teachers' Therapy is our answer to this problem.

Teachers' Therapy was created to show educators that they aren't alone on their journey and many others share their pain...over drinks of course. As a teacher, oftentimes we want someone who has been through the wars, and can feel our pain. "The Hero’s Journey" is relatively unique, and when you cross paths with a fellow warrior, it can be instant magic.

In life, there are times when things get rough, and we want someone to simply listen while we bare our souls (shoulda listened when adults told us, as kids, that getting older sucks). The people who sit back, and don’t say a word are like a gift from above. At the end of the conversation, we usually feel alot better. Like a burden has been lifted off our shoulders.
