Head Smart Wellbeing Ambassadors

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:

  • Definition of role and responsibilities and benefits to the school community
  • Raising awareness of mental health needs and the importance of personal wellbeing
  • To educate and equip young people with knowledge and actions to improve wellbeing
  • To teach the Five Ways to Wellbeing and provide experience of them
  • To devise action plans to implement the five ways in their life
  • To create student-led strategic plans to educate and impact the whole school on wellbeing
  • Awareness and signposting pathways for support available to students in school and externally
  • Wellbeing Ambassador role limits and personal support

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

Using our Head Smart programme we have put together some ideas to help build the 5 Ways to Wellbeing into home life, to help families through these challenging times. You can view these here.
