Who are the Champions?

The Champions all have lived experience so are passionate about making a difference by identifying locally where discrimination exists, coming up with ideas and projects to challenge it. 

Since October 2014 we have trained three groups of Champions, in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness. 30 champions have completed training and are starting projects in a variety of locations.  

This year, we are holding training in Lanarkshire and Perth. See below for details and how to apply.

Some of the projects include:

  • Working with students to tackle self-stigma
  • Pass the Badge Campaign
  • Exploring stigma within the healthcare system
  • Community consultations to raise awareness and getting people involved
  • Working with trade unions and HR to improve policies and practise regarding mental health in the workplace

Community champions might also: 

  • Run events
  • Devise local campaigns
  • Speak in schools and workplaces as part of a wider programme
  • Spread the See Me message at community groups
  • Encourage people to join the movement
  • Gather local stories and experiences to share with us


What is involved?

Champion Training takes place over a 3-4 month period, with approximately one training session a month.
In between sessions Champions have reflective and planning tasks to complete.  They also have meetings with their mentor at key points during the training programme.

Scottish Mental Health First Aid Training by Neighbourhood Networks

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 By: Gerald | Tagged: , |

This two day course, organised by Neighbourhood Networks, will take place on Thursday 18th and Thursday 25th February 2016.  Participants should be able to commit to attending both days (9.30 am - 4pm.) 

At the Jim Foley Centre, Craigneuk, Wishaw

Target audience: All who have a professional or personal interest in the field of mental health.

The course does not train people to be mental health workers. It offers basic general information about mental health problems. The knowledge presented and understanding developed in the course helps to remove stigma and fear and to give confidence in approaching a person in distress.

Mental Health First Aid is an initial response to distress and all participants on the course understand that this help is given only until other suitable or professional help can be found

Aims of SMHFA:

  • To preserve life
  • To provide practical help
  • To promote the recovery of good mental health
  • To provide comfort to a person experiencing distress
  • To promote understanding of mental health issues


By the end of this training participants will have considered:

  • Attitudes to mental health issues
  • The recovery message
  • The impact of alcohol and drugs
  • Suicide intervention
  • Listening skills
  • Self harm
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Psychosis

All participants will be given a copy of the SMHFA manual and a certificate on completion of the course.

COST: £40 for the two day course (including lunch and refreshments.)
