interested in learning about mental health?
Visyon are running a Community Ambassador scheme where we provide free mental health awareness training to members of the community, groups and businesses. Our aim is to educate as many people as we can in mental health awareness and the work that Visyon do so that they are able to support others.
why take part in the community ambassador scheme?
1 in 4 people experience mental health difficulties at some point in their life so it is likely that somebody you know will have mental health difficulties in your life. This could be a friend, a family member or a colleague. Knowing how to recognise the signs of mental health conditions and how best to support them could help them to recover and to seek the help that they need. Once you have completed the mental health awareness training you will receive a certificate that shows that you are a Visyon community ambassador and have taken part in the training.

what is the community ambassador scheme?
Visyon are looking to recruit and train community ambassadors who will be trained to have an understanding of mental health. The community ambassador scheme is a free scheme. The scheme involves taking part in free mental health awareness training where you will learn about mental health such as what is mental health, statistics, the different types of mental health and how to spot it and how best to support people with their mental health. The aim of the scheme is to educate as many members of the community, groups and businesses as possible about mental health so that everybody knows how to support individuals with their mental health.
what happens once I've taken part in the community ambassador scheme?
You will be able to share your knowledge with others and know more about mental health and feel more confident about supporting people with their mental health. You will also have the opportunity to be kept up to date about the work that we are doing and will be invited to community ambassador events that we are holding to meet other community ambassadors and to join our campaigns. This will give you an opportunity to meet people who are like you and share a passion for mental health.
