Mid and North East Essex Mind, your local mental health charity, is delighted to be partnering up with RED January again – a month long community initiative that encourages people to get active every day to support their mental health.
You can walk, run, cycle, swim (or whatever you fancy!) – the aim is to get moving daily, whilst raising awareness and support for mental health.
Jenny MacPherson, Community Partnerships Fundraiser, says “RED January is founded on research that shows physical activity can have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing and even reduce symptoms of mental illness such as depression and anxiety. January can sometimes be a particularly difficult time for those who struggle with their mental health, so this challenge can really help give you something positive to focus on”.
If you would like to take part in RED January in aid of Mid and North East Essex Mind, the money you raise will go directly towards supporting our local services in the community and will help us to support children and adults who are experiencing a mental health problem.
