Healthy Minds workshops
These online workshops from Calderdale’s Staying Well Hub will help improve mental health and promote feelings of wellness.  You can try a variety of fun exercises including crafting for free. Participants had the opportunity to tap into their creativity and many reported that the process of making and connecting with others have been helpful with their wellbeing. No experience is necessary, just the willingness to have a go! Join us in a friendly, supportive environment.
