Exploring Personal Values (two-part course)

There are social groups and art workshops too. You’re bound to find something of interest!

Workshops

Making Connections Tuesday 9th February, 11.30-1.00pm

Staying connected with who we are and with others can be difficult in these uncertain
times, where we can lose touch with what we enjoy and what keeps us well. As well
as being a fun exercise, mind mapping can help us to figure out what’s important and
gain new understandings. No previous experience or a flare for creativity required,
just bring yourself, a pen and paper.

Media and Mental Wellbeing – Tuesday 16th February, 11-12.30pm

A space to discuss the impact media can have on us; from social media, watching
the news and reading newspapers. We will look at its limitations and the
positive/negative effects, with the chance to share and discuss self-care tips on how
we can develop a healthy relationship with media for better mental health.

Transforming Community Mental Health Services in Calderdale December 15

Posted on Updated on

A major piece of work is underway to invest in community mental health services. The aim is to improve people’s experience by creating a new system that closes the gaps. Importantly, this new system will properly value the role of the voluntary and community sector (VCS) in mental health support. The VCS have been lobbying for this recognition for many years – the community MH transformation presents a genuine opportunity to make this happen. If your organisation has a role to play in community mental health support, it is time to get involved! 

Healthy Minds Calderdale want to start the conversation about how this could work in Calderdale with a Zoom meeting for local VCS providers on Tuesday 15th December at 3.30pm. 

NHS England has set extremely short deadlines for the proposal, which is why this initial meeting is at such short notice.  A draft proposal has been submitted to NHS England. A final proposal needs to be submitted in January 2021. If Calderdale is successful and awarded funding, the transformation work will start in 2021 and take place over a three-year period.

Tuesday’s meeting will not be the one and only discussion as plans develop but a start needs to be made.

Things to bear in mind: 
The transformation programme is to improve care for adults and older adults with severe mental illness (not including dementia).
Some priorities have been set by NHS England. They are:

  • Provide better care to people already receiving mental health support in the community;
  • Increase access to these services;
  • Improve pathways for people with eating disorders, people who have community rehab needs and people have a personality disorder diagnosis;
  • Increase the number of people with Severe Mental Illness (SMI) receiving a comprehensive physical health checks.

To Join the meeting on Tuesday 15th December at 3.30pm please email Jonny Morrison at jonny@healthymindscalderdale.co.uk for a zoom link and password.
