Ambassadors

Could you be an Ambassador?


As part of the John O’Halloran Initiative, LionHeart is hoping to recruit 'ambassadors' to help us drive forward the mental health awareness message within the workplace, and at property sector events.


Ambassadors will be RICS professionals who have experience of mental ill health either personally or through a close relative or friend. The role requires them to share their experiences and encourage other colleagues to speak out or seek support if necessary.


The role of the ambassador:


Ambassadors will be able to help us start a conversation about mental ill health and break down stigmas around seeking support. This might include: 

 

- Talk: 

Start conversations around mental ill health within the workplace 


Promote: 
Raise awareness of mental health issues including the effects of poor mental health, and the importance of the right help in the workplace
 
Support: 
Work with property industry colleagues to proactively support mental wellbeing, and provide information on external support that is available
 
Advocate: 
Share guidance and information provided by LionHeart with colleagues and managers
 
Encourage: 
Encourage colleagues and managers to participate in workshops and training to increase their understanding of mental health
 
Attend: 
Attend events such as the annual symposium to share their personal experiences
 
Blog: 
Share experiences through LionHeart's website blog

- Share: 
Help promote LionHeart's mental health work via social media 


LionHeart will be happy to provide ambassadors with any necessary support and guidance to fulfill this role.
