Healthy Minds Calderdale are putting together a series of informative, helpful workshops, designed to assist during the challenging times we’re facing.
Their workshops happen over zoom and give the opportunity for all participants to get together and work through issues, finding ways of dealing with difficult situations and improving wellbeing.
There are social groups and art workshops too. You’re bound to find something of interest!
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. Paper-based postal versions of all workshops are also available. See below details on how to book or request a workshop.
Arts and Crafts for Wellbeing – 1st and 3rd, 6.00-7.30pm
A light hearted space for people to make some creative connections. Each session is themed. Past activities have included mask making, Zentangling and origami.
