Launch of Calderdale Wellbeing Heroes Awards

Thursday 19 May marks the launch of a search for local Wellbeing Heroes, who are to be honoured at the Calderdale Wellbeing Heroes Awards ceremony on 10 October 2016. The ceremony is to be hosted by Insight Healthcare, in celebration of World Mental Health Day.

Is there someone in your life who helped you in your time of need? Someone who encourages you to do the things that are good for you, reminds you that you are not alone, or listens to you when you need them to? Wellbeing Heroes Awards wants your nomination!

You can nominate someone who has helped you in any way, no matter how big or small. It could be a family member, friend, colleague, or a professional who has made a difference to your wellbeing. Winners will receive an award and prizes during the ceremony in October. The deadline for nominations is Friday 29 July 2016.

The Calderdale Wellbeing Heroes Awards will take place to mark World Mental Health Day, which is celebrated on 10 October each year. Nomination forms can be collected from Insight Healthcare’s Calderdale service or downloaded here. More information about the event will be released nearer the time.

Everyone goes through difficult times and sometimes our problems affect our day-to-day lives and we feel that we can’t cope. Each year, nearly a quarter of us have difficulties with common psychological problems such as anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem, stress, trauma, phobias, and anger, as well as problems with regards to relationships, work, or debt. If you are in this situation, you are not alone.

Insight Healthcare provides free and confidential NHS talking therapy services across the country. These therapies can help you understand what is happening to you, help you work through your difficult feelings, and develop strategies for coping better. Calderdale’s service is available to anyone who is aged 18 or over and registered with a Calderdale GP.

Here is the latest information regarding events planned from February to June 2015 with the Calderdale Women’s Inter-faith Group.

Wednesday 11 February 2015  10am to 12noon – St Paul’s Church of England
The topic of the session will be Self Defence Techniques for Women and how to keep safe and will be run by a lady with qualifications and good experience in running this kind of training. It is for all ages and you and your friends are more than welcome.

Tuesday 10 March 2015 – 1pm to 3pm – Halifax High School
we have been kindly invited to a showcase of a project called “The Land beneath My Feet” – this is a health & well being project that the ladies of Integrated Calderdale have been involved in, with an organisation called Ver De Gris. Come along if you can – this is for everyone – men and women.

Tuesday 17 March 2015 – 10am to 12noon – St Andrew’s Methodist Church
We will be joined by 2 women from Bradford who will run a workshop called Weaving Women’s Wisdom. No skills in weaving needed! It will be a real opportunity to work in a small group, creating and talking.

Tuesday 12 May 2015 – Morning
Marion Pollitt is going to lead us on a walk – no mountains involved – this will be a walk most of us can easily take part in. More details will be available closer to the time.

Monday 8th June 2015 – Morning
Julia Slater is going to do a demonstration of hand massage before you get the chance to practise this skill. Julia is trained and experienced in a whole range of complementary therapies – this will certainly be an interesting and relaxing morning.
