Active every day…to beat the blues away
Support your mental health this January by doing something active every single day.
RED January is now more inclusive than ever, focusing on getting active, your way. If it’s running 5k, or walking to work a new way, a morning swim or just taking the bike for a spin – join the thousands of people around the UK kick-starting their 2019 in the most positive way.
By deciding you want to fundraise for your local Mind this RED January, the proceeds raised will directly impact your local community, whilst giving you the opportunity to build a network of REDers nearby.
With a growing community of 30,000 REDers around the country, you’ll never be alone. Support will be on hand for tips and encouragement at every step, splash, and pedal of the way.
So give it a go! Push yourself a little to achieve a lot, both physically and mentally. You might be surprised at where the challenge takes you.

Fundraise in memory
Giving In Memory
By supporting Lancashire Mind in memory of a loved one, we’re able to support more people when they need it so no one has to face difficult times alone.
You can make a donation in memory on our JustGiving page.
However there are many ways to honour and celebrate someone’s life, raising funds and giving in memory of a loved one is a very special way to remember them too. It can mean so much at a time of sadness and provide a tribute that lasts for years to come.
Support like this will help Lancashire Mind to prevent more people from developing a mental health condition and offer support to those currently living with one.
Contact [email protected] for more information about how to fundraise or make a donation in memory of a loved one.
Mental Elf is our annual 5k Fun Run with the emphasis on fun! It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned runner or prefer a stroll in the park, the event is for everyone. Whether you want to run, skip, hop or jog your way across the finish line we really appreciate your help in raising vital funds that allow us to continue doing what we do.
Lancashire Mind’s vision is mental wellbeing for all; we want everyone in Lancashire to be aware of and know how to improve their wellbeing. Regular physical activity is associated with lower rates of depression and anxiety. An active lifestyle not only keeps our bodies healthy, but makes us feel good too! By taking part in Mental Elf, people boost their own wellbeing as well as helping other people across Lancashire.
Mental Elf 2018 will be held on Sunday 2nd December at Witton Park in Blackburn. Visit the Mental Elf webpage for more details
