Open Minds is becoming Time Out

Posted on Updated on

Open Minds has been delivering mental health education and anti-stigma sessions in Calderdale’s schools and community groups for the past five years.  With a welcome and growing focus on children and young people’s emotional wellbeing, our work on Open Minds has been joining up with lots of other organisations’ work for young people – all of which has brought Calderdale to this point.
The name “Open Minds” has been adopted for the overall programme that includes all the various projects that support emotional wellbeing in children and young people, so we are changing our name to avoid confusion and what we’ve been doing under the Open Minds name is becoming part of Time Out.

We’ll be running introductory workshops for organisations who may be interested in being part of Time Out:

  • Monday 19 June 11am – 1pm
  • Tuesday 20 June 10:30am – 12:30pm
  • Wednesday 21 June 10:30am – 12:30pm

At VAC Resource Centre, Hall Street, Halifax HX1 5AY. You only need to come to one of the workshops.

Find out what Time Out is all about and how your organisation can get involved.  This is open to any organisation that offers activities that support young people’s wellbeing, to whatever extent.  If you work with young people, we’d like to talk with you about Time Out.

All are welcome but please book a place on 01422 345154 or by email to tara@healthymindscalderdale.co.uk
