It's essential for educational establishments to implement more preventative measures to stop their members of staff suffering from stress at work.
That is according to Ronnie Smith, the general secretary of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), which believes professionals in this sector north of the border require extra support.
New official figures published recently showed that, over the course of the last 12 months, some £650,000 compensation has been paid to teachers in Scotland for injuries at work.
And Mr Smith insisted that a growing number of people are struggling with anxiety as the pressure of their job gets to them, meaning employers need to act sooner rather than later to quell this "major problem" before it gets any bigger.
"[This] must be a warning to employers that they need to take account of their employees' mental, as well as physical, wellbeing," he stated.
