Head Smart is a peer-led wellbeing ambassador programme funded by Mindsight Surrey CAMHS. Eikon will deliver a training programme and resources to develop wellbeing ambassadors in your school who will be able to help other students to think about their own mental health and the practical things they can do to promote positive wellbeing. A Wellbeing Ambassador promotes wellbeing in school through education, activities, events and whole school communication.
Eikon will provide 2- 3 hours of training and a workbook, covering the following:
The programme has follow-on training to grow ambassadors into advisors, and advisors into peer wellbeing mentors. We are partnering with Kooth.com and on request we can offer additional lessons; assemblies and small group sessions on using technology for wellbeing.
We have had amazing feedback from our Surrey schools who are running the Head Smart Wellbeing Ambassadors Programme. To read some of the brilliant initiatives taking place which could be easily be replicated in your school please click here
