In December 2021, we were delighted to announce our partnership with Starling Minds, and we are excited to share with you that through OTIP, Starling Minds is now available to members and their families at no cost.
Starling Minds offers 24/7 access to a digital mental health platform that can help members proactively build healthier, more positive life-long habits into their daily lives and build resilience to stress, anxiety, burnout, and depression.
The impacts of the pandemic and its variants have created a massive strain on students, educators, and the education community. With constant school shutdowns and remote learning mandates, educators are working to maintain education standards for their students. However, it leaves little time and energy for educators to care for themselves.
To register for Starling Minds, members simply need to visit http://member.starlingminds.com/ and use the access code OSSTFMEMBER (all-caps).
We’ve created the attached communication to help you promote Starling Minds to members within your local units. Please share it in your weekly/monthly communications with members. A brochure is also attached for distribution to your members.
On May 5th, the team at Starling invites local OSSTF/FEESO leaders to join them for a 30-minute webinar to learn more about this digital mental health platform and how it can support your members in their mental health journey.
