School wellbeing ambassadors
Head Smart Programme
Free resource for Surrey schools
Knowing how important wellbeing resources are right now we have developed the Head Smart Programme into a downloadable resource with a virtual training video. Thanks to funding from Surrey’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Alliance we can provide this free for Surrey Schools. Out of area schools can also access the resource for just £75.
Wellbeing ambassador programme
Head Smart is a peer-led wellbeing ambassador programme funded by Surrey’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Alliance. 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.
What is covered in the training?
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
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.

Wellbeing at home
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.
Following school closures we created a special newsletter offering support to school staff, students and parents. Read our Wellbeing @HOME newsletter.
The Mindworks Surrey service is being delivered by a new alliance of organisations (NHS and national and local voluntary sector) which include Eikon, as part of the Surrey Wellbeing Partnership (SWP). Together we are working to provide a new range of services for children and families. We want to deliver the appropriate level of support at the right time. Our focus is Early Intervention: providing early support, building resilience, and developing relationships with children, young people, and families, and strengthening links with the wider community provision.
