One of the aspects of my role is to work alongside Champions to encourage, motivate and develop their skills and capacity to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination in their local area. This involves delivering training, attending meetings and supporting champion campaign group development. The most rewarding part of my job is when I see Champions confidence grow and I see the impact that they have on others around them. This is especially evident when I co-run training sessions alongside Champions who bring their own skills and assets alongside their own lived experience of mental health stigma and discrimination
