Time Out

Young and Want to Make a DIFFERENCE? Time Out is Looking for Volunteers.

Posted on

Time Out is a project for young people, created by young people to give a space to allow you to develop in whatever way suits you best. Fortunately, mental health is no longer a taboo subject and Time Out are recruiting volunteers to spread awareness of the help available for those with issues of self-harm, body image or self-esteem.

There are creative opportunities in graphic design, web development or or other media such as film and photography. On a more physical level there are opportunities in  sports, performing arts, music and gaming.

Perhaps even more importantly, is the experience of being part of a team that will help your CV as well as your life-skills.

Time Out is currently looking for volunteers who can not only develop their own skills but help others to do the same.

If you think that, with help and assistance, you could help others, or even would like to discuss without any commitment, then call Annie on 01422 345154 or email annie@healthymindscalderdale.co.uk.

 

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
