A Mental Health Champion is any employee who takes action to raise awareness of mental health amongst their team, encourages positive mental health within the organisation, challenges mental health stigma, and provides peer support to their colleagues.
The Champions by EventWell® programme is here to support this proactive approach to mental health and wellbeing at work.
A programme to train a member/s of your team as your organisation's champion and mental wellbeing lead, including the ‘six mental health at work core standards’ set out in the Stevenson/Farmer Thriving at Work Review 2017 commissioned by the UK Government, and then developed as part of the Mental Health at Work Commitment by Mind.
These six mental health standards, adapted by EventWell® for the events industry with the addition of a seventh standard covering onsite mental health, provide a quality framework to place mental wellbeing at the heart of your organisational culture and a movement that drives organisational policy, procedure and strategy.
EventWell®’s seventh mental health core standard provides a set of actions that support the mental wellbeing of your customers, delegates, visitors and stakeholders whilst in your duty to care and within your event environments.
