We recognize that those who support others need guidance and support too. Mental Health Champions Club is Doncaster Mind’s way of supporting and empowering Mental Health Champions from local organizations so they can support their colleagues in the most resourceful ways possible. Because we are all in this together!

Our aim is to lead the way in promoting good mental health in the workplace...one organization at a time.

Mental Health Champions Club is an initiative supporting personal growth of our members and, as a result, organizational growth. Our community of Mental Health Champions learn, explore what works, identify what doesn’t work and share ideas of how to make a workplace an environment which supports mental health and wellbeing of employees.

What will you gain from joining our Mental Health Champions Club?

  1. Regular (quarterly) free networking events fostering connection and providing opportunity to share best practice of supporting mental health in the workplace.
  2. Access to free training sessions facilitated during networking events, which will give you tools and ideas on different ways you can support yourself and your colleagues.
  3. Opportunity to discuss challenges faced as a Mental Health Champion with Doncaster Mind team, who not only talk the talk but walk the walk too and have wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to mental health.
