How To Become A Mental Health Champion

resource image

A mental health champion is defined as any person a part of an organization who takes the necessary actions to:

  • Raise awareness of the real impacts of mental illness
  • Challenge and reverse the effects of mental health stigma within the workplace
  • Provide peer support and helpful resources to their networks and colleagues

Creating a safe and transparent workplace, as a mental health champion, involves opening up a dialogue that may make other employees uncomfortable because mental health is still deemed abnormal to talk about in certain workspaces.
