Red January Challenge

Acting Together For Better Mental Health

Lots of people get depressed in winter when the festive time is over and the days are still dark.

What can you do to feel like yourself again?

Support your mental health this January by joining #RedJanuary challenge and doing something active every single day.

The RED community with its partner, the leading mental health charity, Mind, provide information, advice and support while campaigning for a better deal and respect for everyone experiencing a mental health problem.

This January, challenge yourself to get active every day, your way!
