Ambassador of Hope training

Half hour mental health awareness training

The Ambassadors of Hope programme is Chasing the Stigma’s accessible mental health training.

Available to individuals and businesses large and small, the training focuses on how to talk about mental health, how to effectively signpost those who need help to appropriate support and how to deal with a mental health crisis.

Chasing the Stigma is a charity that has been founded on lived experiences of mental health issues, dealing with mental illness and living with positive mental health. We have listened, we have learnt and we have vowed to take action.

Working with Ofqual regulated Open Awards, we have developed a fully accredited ‘Ambassador of Hope’ programme which offers training about wellbeing awareness and accessible and practical pathways to help yourself and others in relation to mental health.

We have designed this programme with one question in mind: “If somebody came to you asking for help with mental health, would you know what to do?”

We hope, after becoming an Ambassador of Hope, the answer will resoundingly be “yes”.

Our objective is not to turn you into mental health experts, it’s to empower you and your colleagues to have effective, confident conversations about mental health, removing stigma and signposting those who need help to support.

Our training has been awarded the Open Awards Badge of Excellence.

All participants will receive a certificate confirming their Ambassador of Hope accreditation as well as an Ambassador of Hope pin badge, which will offer the most comforting of messages to people in mental distress, without a word being spoken.
