Whilst not everyone can be a qualified physical and mental health professional, almost everyone has been, or knows of someone that has been impacted by a physical or mental health problem in their lives.

Aimed at identifying and utilising team members that are resilient and passionate about the wellbeing of others, your Wellness Champions are critical to the success of the program.

Wellness Champions are used to create a sustainable wellness culture. Therefore, it is vital to actively appoint resources within your organisation to drive the program’s success and help direct workers to the applicable support services.

Champions will be provided with training, resources and on-going support from the wellness team. Ideally, your Champions will volunteer for the position, rather than be assigned to the role
