Educator's Wellness Matters Program
Purpose and Meaning
The associations between teachers’ and students’ mental health and well-being cannot be overstated. Teacher well-being is highly correlated to their work satisfaction, student well-being, and academic achievement.
Stressors: Teacher stress is one of the contributing factor in Teacher well-being. Teaching might seem like a much less stressful job than being a nurse or physician. However, according to a recent poll, 46% of teachers report high daily stress, which ties them with nurses for the most stressful occupation in America today.
Assessing Mental Health
According to the United States government mental health site, mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Jars Education Institute presents training opportunities for those interested in obtaining a Behavioral Health Management Certificate.
Behavioral Health Management (BHM) certificate is an intensive program designed to create a class of highly skilled Behavioral para-professionals in the nation. Each module is a 40-hour training offered in a one-week format, targeted to those interested in furthering their skill and knowledge base on integration and behavioral health. Graduates will be able to implement new behavioral and positive coping strategies in their organizations and personal lives. BHM training will prepare you to provide training, coaching, and leadership to your audience and participants.
A comprehensive introduction to Behavioral management that is suitable for those interested in personal, community and organizational wellness. There is a high correlation between wellness and productivity. Productivity loss, absenteeism, job abandonment, and higher turnover are often directly linked to poor mental health. For example, research shows that people with symptoms of depression have a five-fold or greater increase in time lost from work compared to those without symptoms of depression. In a highly stressed culture, there is a likelihood that under-performance is significantly high. The World Health Organization, for instance, estimates that depression and anxiety disorders, account for around $1 trillion in global productivity losses per year.
This program is especially suitable for coaches who work with businesses, organizations, including religious, NGOs, and community partners and clients. Comprised of PowerPoint focused presentations, face to face presentations, audio files, handouts, and recommended articles for further information. The course does not require that the student have any previous knowledge or experience in the area of mental health, just an interest or a need to know.
Psychological First Aid (PFA) Program
Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an evidence-informed modular approach to help children, adolescents, adults, and families in the immediate aftermath of disaster and terrorism. Individuals affected by a disaster or traumatic incident, whether survivors, witnesses or responders to such events, may struggle with or face new challenges following the event.
PFA was developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the National Center for PTSD, with contributions from individuals involved in disaster research and response.
Social Development Program
Over the last 15 years, the research into early childhood brain development has shown that early experiences of children of a profound impact on their emotional health, physical well-being, and ultimately on their school readiness and success. However, there is a growing understanding that much work still needs to be done to connect this information with the mental health provider community.
It’s important that anyone who works with the early childhood population to have a basic understanding of children’s social and emotional development and behavioral health and how critical nurturing relationships with consistent caring adults are key to healthy development.

A report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that in 2017, women who were full-time employees only made 82% of their male counterparts' salaries. The gap is even worse if you are a woman of color. If changes in the wage gap continue at the same rate, it will take until 2059 for women to earn the same as men.
Consider the boardroom: Less than 5% of Fortune 500 company CEOs are women. While women enter the workforce on the same footing as men, the further up the corporate ladder you go, the fewer women you find.
These inequalities likely aren't news to many leaders, especially women, as gender differences in the workplace are widely written about. But the question remains: What can we do? I believe educating ourselves and others is a good place to start.
Our Women Network programs will empower your women and help create a succession pipeline.
Emotional Intelligence Training
Emotional intelligence describes the ability to understand one's own feelings, and that of groups, and how these emotions can influence motivation and behavior. The concepts of Emotional Intelligence have been around since at least the 1900's, but the term was first introduced by Wayne Payne in 1985.
As a result of the growing acknowledgement by professionals of the importance and relevance of emotions to work outcomes, the research on the topic continued to gain momentum. Jars Institute will train your staff and management to achieve the following:
· Define and practice self-management, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, and empathy.
· Understand, use and manage your emotions.
· Verbally communicate with others.
· Successfully communicate with others in a non-verbal manner.
· Identify the benefits of emotional intelligence.
· Relate emotional intelligence to the workplace.
· Balance optimism and pessimism.
Solution Driven Teaching and Learning
Diversity represents who we are as human beings including race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status or physical disability.
A lot of companies consider lifestyles, personality characteristics, perspectives, opinions, family composition, education level or tenure elements of diversity, too.
Framing diversity as policy provides necessary clarity -- "building diverse teams is our policy, so our HR strategy specifically encourages older workers to apply."
Inclusion has to be understood as very different from diversity because simply having a wide roster of demographic characteristics won't make a difference to an organization's bottom line unless the people who fall into any one demographic feel welcomed.
Inclusion refers to a cultural and environmental feeling of belonging.
It can be assessed as the extent to which employees are valued, respected, accepted and encouraged to fully participate in the organization.
What happens now that you are a supervisor, manager or President? A title doesn't necessarily make you a leader, however, a bit of knowledge, awareness, and coaching does.
The concept of Leadership is a paradigm shift - it is the difference between being the Lonestar of your department or company to leading people. Leaders are vested in people. We can't move a company or business with a lone star driver but we can build a company of people who are moving in the same direction.
