Today is World Mental Health Day and it’s the perfect opportunity to increase visibility and awareness of the mental health and emotional wellness of not just ourselves but of those in our communities, as well.
Join Give an Hour today as we launch our Wellness Ambassador program. Can you think of a better way to celebrate World Mental Health Day? We think not.
Who are Wellness Ambassadors?
Teachers, coaches, pastors, entrepreneurs. Anyone who places value on mental health and emotional well-being. At Give an Hour, we are working to build stronger, healthier and more resilient individuals and communities. If this resonates with you, YOU can be a Wellness Ambassador! No formal training or mental health expertise is required.
What is expected of me as a Wellness Ambassador?
As much or as little as you’re able. Make mental health a priority and lead by example. Just add mental health awareness to the things you already do. Share tools and resources with your book club, parent-teacher organization, church group or workplace team. It’s that easy.
How will I know what to share?
Give an Hour will be there every step of the way! We will provide you with all the tools and resources you might need. There is a page on our website dedicated to Wellness Ambassadors with a lot of information to get you started. You will receive regular communications from us via email to provide additional information and keep you on the right track.
Why do we need Wellness Ambassadors?
It’s no secret that there is a mental health crisis in the United States and with only one mental health provider for every 95 people with a mental illness, there just aren’t enough professionals to go around! Whether it’s lack of funds, resources or knowledge, we know people are not getting the care they need. Give an Hour helps by providing programs, training, resources and a network of mental health professionals to support the current systems. So if our Wellness Ambassadors can be proactive in their communities and help provide awareness, opportunities and tools for people to take charge of their mental health, maybe we can make a difference – one person, one community at a time.
How do I become a Wellness Ambassador?
So glad you asked! There’s a quick form to complete here. That’s it!
Our Wellness Ambassador program is a really simple way for you (or anyone!) to incorporate advocating for mental health and wellness into their everyday routines.
So for World Mental Health Day 2022, can we count on your commitment to make mental health a priority in your community by becoming a Wellness Ambassador today?
