Thursday 19 May marks the launch of a search for local Wellbeing Heroes, who are to be honoured at the Calderdale Wellbeing Heroes Awards ceremony on 10 October 2016. The ceremony is to be hosted by Insight Healthcare, in celebration of World Mental Health Day.
Is there someone in your life who helped you in your time of need? Someone who encourages you to do the things that are good for you, reminds you that you are not alone, or listens to you when you need them to? Wellbeing Heroes Awards wants your nomination!
You can nominate someone who has helped you in any way, no matter how big or small. It could be a family member, friend, colleague, or a professional who has made a difference to your wellbeing. Winners will receive an award and prizes during the ceremony in October. The deadline for nominations is Friday 29 July 2016.
The Calderdale Wellbeing Heroes Awards will take place to mark World Mental Health Day, which is celebrated on 10 October each year. Nomination forms can be collected from Insight Healthcare’s Calderdale service or downloaded here. More information about the event will be released nearer the time.
Everyone goes through difficult times and sometimes our problems affect our day-to-day lives and we feel that we can’t cope. Each year, nearly a quarter of us have difficulties with common psychological problems such as anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem, stress, trauma, phobias, and anger, as well as problems with regards to relationships, work, or debt. If you are in this situation, you are not alone.
Insight Healthcare provides free and confidential NHS talking therapy services across the country. These therapies can help you understand what is happening to you, help you work through your difficult feelings, and develop strategies for coping better. Calderdale’s service is available to anyone who is aged 18 or over and registered with a Calderdale GP.
The Council, the Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group and other partners are working to improve children and young people’s emotional wellbeing.
In Calderdale, when we talk about emotional wellbeing, we usually include:
- Emotional wellbeing
- Psychological wellbeing
- Social wellbeing
The aim is to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people by making sure they have support from their parents and carers.
This scheme will give one-off cash grants to organisations working with or for parents, including public sector agencies, schools and voluntary organisations. This money will be used to strengthen or start up any projects that support parents and carers in a way that helps their children’s emotional wellbeing.
Any public sector, schools or voluntary organisation can apply for anything from £5,000 to £20,000 and a Grants Panel made up of people from the Council and from the Emotional Wellbeing Taskforce, which includes representatives from health, schools and other partners will decide who gets a grant.
If you are interested in applying for one of these grants, please read the supporting documents below for further information and complete the application form before returning it to: Naomi Whenham at Naomi.firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporting documents – Please read before submitting your application
Deadline for applications is Friday 29 April 2016 and you will be informed of a decision in the week commencing Monday 23 May 2016.
FREE event open to all where wellbeing, presentation and confidence professionals will be present at stands and workshops to answer your questions, give advice and help.
Thursday 3 March 2016 – 1pm to 6pm
