The Knowledge, Confidence & Skills You Need to Apply & Promote Mental Health Awareness & Education In Your Workplace
In this 12-hour Certification Program, we’ll guide you through three comprehensive Mental Fitness online training courses, equipping you with everything you need to effectively create sustainable change in your workplace, school or community group.
Why You Should Become Certified
Mental Fitness Champions are individuals and leaders within your organization who are proud, passionate and trained to promote positive mental health awareness in the workplace.
Implementing real and lasting mental health awareness in your workplace, team, school, family or community takes more than a willingness and eagerness to create positive change.
You also need to equip yourself with the language, toolbox and resources to effectively communicate, teach and intervene with others before it’s too late. In other words, you need to be proactive, not reactive.
That’s why we’re proud to offer the world’s most practical, interactive and scientifically-validated Mental Fitness training experience.
With the first Mental Fitness Champion Certification of it’s kind — you, your team and your community can reimagine how the world approaches mental health awareness and training.
What is a Mental Fitness Champion?
Mental Fitness Champions are proud, passionate and most importantly – trained – to promote positive mental health awareness in their workplace, schools, sports teams, families and communities.

How it Works
Getting started improving your Mental Fitness is simple.

Here’s how to get started right away…
Decide if you’ll complete the certification as an individual or as a group. If you're selecting a group, you can get in touch with us to arrange special times, discounts or custom content.
Select the course date and time that works best for you - or your team’s - schedule. Don’t see a timeslot that works for you? Contact us to arrange private training courses for your team.
Confirm your selection. Will you start with one of the three courses, or will you become a Certified Mental Fitness Champion and complete all three?
That's it! Now we'll help get your staff and management team on board by positioning your training goals and communicating “what’s in it for them” with provided materials in the lead-up to the course.
Who is This Training For?
We use technology, story-telling and inspiring language to re-imagine how you take action on mental health.
For mental health advocates, team managers and human resource leaders who want to take a more proactive and preventative approach to building Mental Fitness awareness, skills and resources across their organization.
For teachers, principals and counselors who want to train and prepare their staff with the tools they need to manage the inevitable Mental Fitness challenges and setbacks of daily life while inspiring lifelong positive habits and healthy coping skills.
For coaches, captains, trainers and club leaders who want to break the stigma surrounding mental health and better support the health and highest performance of their team-mates, colleagues and support staff – both on and off the field.
For individuals who want to learn how to better identify, address and support the Mental Fitness of their friends, families, coworkers and peers whilst equipping themselves with the tools and resources they need to support their own optimal Mental Fitness.
I thought I would share one piece of feedback that made it all worthwhile – “Attended the first session, and it was a great intro! Very difficult to find balance on a topic like mental health in a group (particularly of colleagues), and you did an excellent job at making that accessible.”
Kiane O’Farrell, HR Business Partner, Accent Group Limited
The course was fantastic and so very inspiring. The quality and relevance of the course content was excellent. The presentation of the course was amazing, honest and very user friendly. Overall, the course was very practical and important for my role.
Brenda Duggan, Educator
We recently partnered with Hadleigh for an initiative created to support employees affected by COVID-19. It was a course on how to strengthen Mental Fitness and optimism during this uncertain period we are facing. The feedback from the session was positive, and we look forward to holding more sessions in the future.

Becoming a Certified Mental Fitness Champion includes 12 hours of virtual face-to-face group discussion and learning. This training is divided into three 4-hour courses, with each course divided into two 2-hour sessions generally run one week apart.
Therefore, you can expect to complete your Mental Fitness Champion Certification over a period of around 6-8 weeks. For organizations running private Certifications, we have the flexibility to lengthen or shorten the learning time-frame depending on your needs.
Absolutely! Mental Fitness Champions are certified by Mental Fitness Hub to become proactive workplace Mental Fitness leaders. All participants will receive both a physical and digital Mental Fitness Champion Certification.
Upon completion, Champions will be provided with resources and tools to promote their new qualification on email signatures, social media profiles and desktop reminders.
Our Certification includes 12 hours of face-to-face training with two expert Mental Fitness trainers, ongoing exclusive access to the Mental Fitness Online Resource Library, and, of course, your very own Certified Mental Fitness Champion certificate.
For individuals, becoming a Certified Mental Fitness Champion costs A$749 (including GST). For organizations, costs vary depending on your group size. Please contact us for a custom quote.
Our online training is conducted in small groups of up to 20 people which is the ideal learning environment for deep discussion, experience sharing and engagement.
Our public courses are available for individual or group to sign up, and our private courses are available for group or workplace bookings.
Our public course times are listed on our website’s Book a Course page, and we are always adding more to the schedule, so if you don’t see a timeslot that works for you, contact Us so we can find a time that’s right for you. Private sessions for up to 20 people are also available upon request for workplaces and larger groups. Simply send us an email on our Contact Us page and we’ll find a day and time that works for you.
We offer courses in two formats.
Our open courses are open to the public, which we run at set times each month. These courses are ideal if you are an individual or small group looking to participate in our courses, become a Mental Fitness Champion, or try out our training before rolling it out at your workplace. You can sign up on our Book A Course page.
Our private courses are for larger groups and organizations who might want a specific date and time for training or customized content. These courses are not open to the public and will only have selected participants enrolled. You can either sign up using our Book a Course page or you can contact us to discuss further details.
No! Most of our participants prefer to take Mental Fitness First Aid, followed by Mental Fitness Circuit, followed by Mental Fitness Teams to become a Certified Mental Fitness Champion. However, these three courses can be taken in any order so feel free to choose courses based on convenience and availability.
Individuals who sign up for multiple places for one of our courses (such as with friends, family, or workmates) may be eligible for a discount. We offer automatic discounts in our online booking process when you enrol 3, 5, or 10 people in an open course.
Organizations who would like to have employees complete our training are able to receive discounts depending on how many people sign up, how many courses or certificates you run, and other services you may engage Mental Fitness Hub for.
Just Contact Us to let us know how many people you’d like to have trained and certified.
Becoming a Certified Mental Fitness Champion helps you become a recognized, certified, and qualified leader around proactive and preventative mental health at your workplace, school or community group. You’ll be able to support other people having a tough time, discover and apply ways to improve your own Mental Fitness so you respond better to setbacks and challenges, and you’ll be able to inspire others in a team or group setting with the relevant and engaging language of Mental Fitness.
Mental Fitness Hub online mental health training is ideal for workplaces, schools and community groups that want to do more to support employee mental health, and to take action in a more proactive and preventative way.
Our online training is enjoyed by team leaders, line managers, supervisors, new starters, teachers and principals, sports club coaches and support staff, as well as individuals who simply want to be more knowledgeable about mental health, and equipped with the skills to make a difference.
Anyone who cares about good mental health and wellbeing can become a Certified Mental Fitness Champion.
That’s great! In that case, some of the ideas we discuss might not be so new for you. However, our training has a few key differences which we’d love to share with you.
First, our approaches to mental health and wellbeing focus on prevention, habit-formation, and the use of engaging language to inspire people toward a lifestyle of Mental Fitness. This scientifically-backed approach differs from the highly stigmatized and reactive approach commonly used to attend to mental health challenges only after they’ve occurred.
Secondly, our training is more focused on everyday life challenges and supporting people with common everyday mental health challenges rather than focusing mainly on uncommon crisis situations. This involves learning the skills to deal more effectively with overwhelm, setbacks and ongoing problems, as well as how to proactively reach out to support and be supported by others.
Thirdly, our training is designed for the 21st-century environment. We can’t always physically be with the person we are providing support to, and of course, more and more of us are spending time online. That’s why we focus on the ins and outs of what it means to have important mental health conversations over Whatsapp, text, email, social media or video-call. In addition, we are big believers in Digital Nutrition – an approach that helps us to pro-actively design our lifestyle with regards to online information, rather than feel overwhelmed and reactive.
Finally, our training focuses more on recovery and practical support than other training programs. Often, it’s simply not practical or sufficient to simply say: “see your doctor” and leave people to fend for themselves in an expensive and overburdened sick-care system. Whilst engaging with professionals is certainly necessary in some cases, we provide tools to provide support to people over time as their situation goes up and down. Furthermore, we offer regular up-skill training and support through our Mental Fitness Hub community, rather than leaving our Champions to fend for themselves.
Our Mental Fitness First Aid Course is an excellent proactive refresher to people with existing training (such as Mental Health First Aid) or makes an ideal base level of knowledge before tackling our other courses such as Mental Fitness Circuit and Mental Fitness Teams.
Absolutely. One of the things we wanted to improve was the support and reference tools for Champions when they face difficult or uncertain situations.
First, there is our online Mental Fitness Hub Resource Libarary with articles, worksheets, videos and case studies of how to approach various situations.
Secondly, we have an online community where our team and experienced Mental Fitness Champions provide support and coaching through difficult situations.
Finally, we are building a range of digital services, apps and other ways to support people as they support others, support themselves, and support their teams.
This is the paradigm shift in workplace mental health awareness that makes Mental Fitness so inspiring and valuable. While it’s likely that a number of employees are potentially struggling in silence, it’s also important to engage people to understand mental health when they don’t feel like it’s a problem.
In fact, the best time to work on your fitness is when you’re feeling good, so you can build and protect your psychological and emotional resources for the future.
Absolutely not! You will not be learning the “power of positive thinking,” how to “manifest your dreams” or “balance your chakras.” Everything we do at Mental Fitness Hub is evidence-based, meaning that we only use credible scientific research to support our courses. You will never find self-help content or unproven “good ideas” here. We are a team of scientists, and we only recommend things that have been shown to work through rigorous academic research.
For individuals, you can register for one of our open public courses easily through our online booking system and choose the time slot that fits your schedule. To register, visit our Book A Course page.
For groups and organizations, you have the option to register for one of our open public courses by registering all participants during the booking process, or feel free to contact us and book a private session at a time and date that works for you.
Once you have completed the three courses and associated course requirements, you will be issued your Certified Mental Fitness Champion Certificate and have the right to use the Certified Mental Fitness Champion Badge in all digital communications.
