How to be a good mental health champion

In this workshop, led by Therapist and Mental Health Specialist, Balwinder Hunjan, we explored the role of the mental health champion and how to support others effectively. She discusses what attributes are important to support others with their mental health and some of the reasons why people might want to become a mental health champion. In addition, Balwinder offered advice and guidance on self-care for mental health champions.

The instructor’s knowledge was above and beyond what the course requires and her delivery was incredible

I thought this course was fantastic! Really helpful and gave me lots of useful techniques to use going forward

This was the best training course I have ever been on! I'd give our instructor a 12 out of 10 for everything
