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 about preventative support and intervention in the workplace and has been developed to offer a 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, and 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 framework and set of actions that support the mental wellbeing of your customers, delegates, visitors and stakeholders whilst enjoying your event environments and within your duty to care.
Upon completion of their training your mental health and EventWell champion will receive lifelong membership of your exclusive champions network, where they will receive additional support and resources to help and encourage them in their role.

Why do mental health champions make such a difference?
Peer Based Support
Mental health champions can prove to be a valuable source of confidential support and encouragement, particularly for those who are disengaged with wellbeing initiatives or mistrustful of employer involvement, colleagues may not want to seek support from direct management and appreciate a more peer-based approach to wellbeing.
Creating Empathetic Employees
Champions can help forge a more empathetic workforce, as they possess and promote greater understanding of the needs and feelings of others, and by demonstrating a commitment to their own mental health and wellbeing, they make it acceptable for others to behave in a similar way and set the benchmark for self-care amongst the workforce.
Dispelling Fear of Judgement
Employees often feel more comfortable speaking to someone outside of the line management structure, such as a champion who we will train to spot the signs of poor mental health in colleagues and signpost them to the most appropriate avenue of help and support.
Clarity on Prevalent Issues
Champions have a greater understanding of the issues that are prevalent in the workplace, and the top areas for concern, with their ‘ear to the ground’ through observation and conversation, they can identify the issues that really matter to their colleagues.
