Wellbeing champion training
Is this course for you?
Workplace wellbeing champion training, or wellbeing champion training in any setting, is designed to inspire and motivate wellbeing advocates to help create a more positive culture – one in which mental health is freely discussed, with support in place. What is a wellbeing champion? The ‘wellbeing champion’ role is usually taken on alongside an individual’s day-to-day responsibilities. A wellbeing champion is often a volunteer within an organisation tasked with promoting physical and mental wellbeing and raising awareness of supportive wellbeing strategies available.
This course will see you discover how to support wider wellbeing initiatives, promote positive culture change and help to normalise conversations around mental health. You’ll gain a solid understanding of mental health from a non-medical perspective, be able to support wellbeing events, and become an advocate for speaking up and seeking professional support when needed. You’ll also learn about help available to be able to signpost if needed.
The course follows our ‘connect, identify, support’ approach and equips you with the tools and know-how to expertly manage the Govox online wellbeing platform.
Our wellbeing champion training is highly interactive, with whiteboard activities, quizzes, group work and practical examples, as well as short videos. Meanwhile, our in-person course features walking wall activities, information stands, gamification and challenges. Whether online or face to face, this course is highly engaging and provides profound learning experiences and a wellbeing champion ‘toolkit’ of resources and skills to use in your new role.
How it works
