In the Philippines, most of the time teachers are overworked and mental health suffers; yet there is still a problem when it comes to the provision for school-based mental health services because of lack of funding especially in the public school.
This study employs exploratory multiple case study approach which focuses on the delivery of psychological needs of teachers using the data from private institutions across three education levels (elementary, highschool and college) in Manila. Using the Ryff’s multiple facets of Psychological well-being, and three universal needs from Self-determination theory, this research aims to examine teachers' understanding of psychological health and well-being, as well as to determine the programs and projects implemented by educational institutions to promote the psychological well-being of their teachers. By analyzing the responses of school school heads or administrators, the researcher will ascertain how education institutions assess and prioritize the psychological needs of teachers. Additionally, this study will explore the various issues and challenges encountered in meeting these psychological needs.
