I think it was something to do with NUT. Have you tried their website? I saw it on BBC News 24 earlier today.

Sorry - major long post!

But... according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, one in five women and one in ten men will suffer depression at some time in their life and

"In any one year about 3 in every 10 employees will have a mental health problem, and depression is one of the most common"

More info

So the 'news' that 'up to one in three teachers' experience mental health problems just confirms that teaching is as stressful as any other job, doesn't it?

BTW, I have to admit I was totally shocked at how widespread depression/mental health porblems are when I looked into this/depression/mental health as part of my antenatal teacher training.

It might mean that, although iirc mental health issues not distributed evenly amongst social classes /professions genders, so without seeing this programme its ahrd to sayb whether there's significance- it may well be that there is.

FWIW I would suggest that 1 in 10 is a huge underestimate, and that diagnosed depression barely touches the truth of relaity. My Dh had depression and it was very severe by time it was diagnosed
