Resources for Champions

We have recently published guidance on what it means to be a Champion. This takes the form of a framework, which describes the range of activities that Champions can do to support our objectives for the network: to increase awareness of, to advocate for, to practice in our day-to-day roles, and to be a local leader for mind and body care.
