Wellbeing Ambassador Testimonials

“The work of our ambassadors has had a hugely positive effect and has genuinely made a difference to young lives. They’ve become a well known and significant group and cause in the school community.”

Amy Tinson, School Support Leader, Huntingdon School (York) 

“I saw the impact it had on the students we were supporting they became more open and friendly with not only us but their peers around them.”

Lydia, Year 11, Brighouse High School (Calderdale)

“Training and practising as a Wellbeing Ambassador has really improved my self-confidence, mental wellbeing and positivity. It’s such a well-run programme and has a great impact on Ambassadors and Younger Peers.”

Mackenzie, Year 11, Brighouse High School (Calderdale)

“The Worth-it Wellbeing Ambassador training has positively impacted me on many occasions.  It has improved my social skills and team leading.  The programme could not have been better.  All I can say is thank you!”

Johnathan, Year 11, Brighouse High School (Calderdale)

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of the Sixth Form council and from me personally. The Wellbeing Ambasadors Programme was absolutely fabulous and so informative, it has truly helped us to start the process in reducing the stigma of mental health, creating workshops for stress coping mechanisms and just getting people to talk about mental health, illness and wellbeing. This is hopefully the start in a fascinating  journey to improving the support for the students and creating a safe environment for students to learn in. We have talked about it non-stop and have already started getting our proposal into motion to create this new peer support system. Thank you again.”

Kieran Smith and the Sixth Form Council, Hathaway Academy Essex
