The March on Stress team was delighted to hear that one of our StRaW champions, Davina Macdonald-Russell, was honoured in the New Year’s Honours List with a British Empire Medal (BEM) for services to resilience and wellbeing.
While working for the Home Office, Davina undertook March on Stress StRaW (Sustaining Resilience at Work) training and went on to lead and develop the programme within the Home Office. As a result of Davina’s efforts StRaW is now used in a number of areas throughout the Home Office to support and bolster the mental health of staff.
Professor Neil Greenberg, March on Stress Director, said: “Our StRaW training is based on a strong evidence base and the feedback we receive from the training is consistently excellent. However, as with other peer support programmes, it works best where organisations incorporate it into their day to day business, with leadership support and with strong local leadership and co-ordination.
“Davina’s leadership within the Home Office in respect of supporting the mental health of their staff was evident right from the beginning of our working relationship with her. It has been a privilege to work with her and I am immensely delighted that she has been rightly recognised for her hard work”.
Davina has recently started a new role with BMT where she continues to champion resilience and wellbeing in the workplace.
