Teaching and learning methods that are carried out online due to the spread of COVID-19 in the country have had an impact on the mental well-being of teachers and school leaders. In this regard, the Ministry of Education through the School Leaders and Teachers Welfare Unit has implemented a counselling service called Talian Sejahtera to help ease the burden and improve mental well-being specifically for school leaders and teachers.
The approach allows teachers or school leaders requiring counselling to be given appointments for counselling sessions using the Zoom application. Several social media networks were also used to promote the initiative.
Talian Sejahtera at 8682486 operates Monday to Thursday and Saturday, from 8 in the morning to 8 in the evening.
