Is it a bird.. is it a plane.. no, its our very own Healthy Minds thought-bubble mascot, soon to be modelled by our very own volunteer Pat Dale this weekend.
BUT we need your help… our new mascot is in need of a name! Send us your suggestions and we will reveal the winning name on the big day this Sunday.
Read more about Anneliese, Jim and Louise taking on the Virgin 100,000 persons marathon here:
Calderdale mental health charity is lucky to have three local people ready to step up to the challenge and walk 26.2 miles in the first ever 100, 000 person Marathon: this year’s official Virgin Money Virtual London Marathon.
On Sunday 3rd October, Anneliese, Jim and Louise will take on the world’s greatest marathon ‘virtually’ and walk Healthy Minds’ own marathon route through Calderdale.
Team Healthy Minds are just three of the 50,000 participants taking part in the virtual event. Another 50,000 will run the traditional Virgin Money London Marathon from Blackheath to The Mall.
Instead of heading to London, our local team will be walking from Todmorden to Halifax, passing through the local communities that Healthy Minds work with and provide for.

This day is dedicated to Mental Health Awareness and hopes to encourage conversations about Mental Health and Wellbeing.
One in four of us will at some point in the next three months experience some Mental Health issue.
You are invited to take the time to talk with someone, a colleague, a friend, a relative and start with a simple “How Are You?”
We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us with mental health problems are made to feel.
Time to Talk Day is the day that we get the nation talking about mental health. This year’s event might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.
We need your help to start the conversation this Time to Talk Day – together we can end mental health stigma.
Sign up for Time to Talk Day updates and inspiration to help you get the conversation started. https://www.time-to-change.org.uk/get-involved/time-talk-day
Are you aged between 9 – 25?
Do you live or go to school/college in Calderdale?
If so, please could we ask you to take part in this opportunity to have your say on helping shape local mental health services. The survey is open from Friday 7th February until Friday 6th March 2020. Please find the link to the survey here
The information gathered is confidential, meaning we can’t identify you from what you tell us.
We will use the information to help us further improve mental health services
for children and young people in Calderdale.
We, the young people’s Tough Times Reference Group, have released this survey during Children’s Mental Health Week. This is to collect views from all children and young people on emotions and mental health support with the aim to help shape and improve services. We would like everyone who takes part in this survey to know its anonymous, and the results will be shared with managers of services that will listen and take these results from this survey seriously.
We hope to get a 1000 voices and would appreciate everyone’s help to achieve this

…or talk to a friend who feels all at sea?
Surprisingly, for many the jellyfish is the preferred option.
But it need not be.
One in 4 of us experience a mental health problem each year.
It is not unusual.
It is not contagious.
A few words could be all it takes.
Time to Change work to promote discussion around the issues and preconceptions surrounding Mental Health.
It may be that the issue frightens you. It may be that it resonates within you for personal reasons.
It may be Time to Talk.
Visit Time to Change and find out how you can be the difference.
