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.
