Wellbeing Champions


What is a wellbeing champion?

A group of pupils were asked to volunteer to become Wellbeing Champions. The aim is to give pupils a voice and the chance to be involved in improving the mental health and wellbeing of their peers. They attended a few group sessions where they learnt about the importance of mental health and how to look after ourselves.

  • They are friendly and approachable
  • They are creative and enthusiastic
  • They are reliable and interested in Mental Health Topic



The training was based around the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’…


GIVE- A simple act of kindness can help you feel good as well as helping others.

BE ACTIVE-Keeping your body active helps keep your mind healthy.

CONNECT-Spending time with others can give you a boost.
