Mental Health Champions Scheme

What is the Mental Health Champions Scheme?

The Mind Sport and Activity Network for Yorkshire and Humber is establishing a network of volunteers across the region to work with their local sports club or group to support members and new people to improve their mental health through sport and physical activity.

The role of a Mental Health Champion is to support people to access the mental wellbeing benefits of being active, remove stigma and get people talking about mental health.

As a Mental Health Champion, you will be provided with guidance and advice to support you in your role.
