Schools' stress counselling pilot

13th October 1995 at 01:00
Six Leicestershire schools are taking part in a stress counselling scheme. The schools, four primaries and two secondaries will provide teachers and families with 24-hour advice, on how to reduce stress.

A new organisation called the Leicestershire Schools Staff Counselling Service, who will be overseeing the trial period of the scheme, which is being run along with an occupational health programme provided by Leicester Royal Infirmary.

If the project is successful, after the 12-month pilot period, it will be extended to any school in the county. There are three categories of help available. The first is a telephone helpline, the second is four hours of face-to-face counselling. A third level offers up to eight hours of direct counselling.
