A Wellbeing Champion is Somerset Cricket Foundation’s initiative designed to support cricket clubs look out for members. We have trained 25 volunteers in 22 cricket clubs across the county to make a difference in reducing the stigma that surrounds mental health.
Each Wellbeing Champion and their Cricket Club has pledged their support in becoming AWARE.
Throughout the year the Wellbeing Champions will follow a Wellbeing Calendar where each month they plan to shine a light on a mental health theme, in hope to break the taboo and make it a topic of conversation within their cricket club. Each Wellbeing Champion will be working hard to share the positive virtues of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing within the their club as well as being available to listen to team mates & members and signpost to relevant support services if needed, having completed their Level 2 Award in Mental Health First Aid.
If your club would like to join the programme in 2023, please email Steve Gass
