R.E.D New Image (2)

Mind are proud to be continuing our partnership with RED January, a month long community initiative that encourages people to support their mental health by doing something active every day.

2018 was a huge year for RED January with almost 23,000 people kick-starting their year in a positive way by getting active to support their own mental and physical wellbeing. The RED community helped raise awareness and vital funds for mental health.

With over £1 million raised, the vital work of Mind services like the Mind Infoline, our information and advice services, and our campaigning can continue to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve. 

Plans are underway for RED January 2019 with more information available at the end of summer – keep checking this page for more information.


Pete's RED January thank you!

Fellow REDer, Pete, called the infoline last year when he needed help. Pete has continued to support Mind since and knows how important this service is. 

He's recorded a special video message of thanks to you all and we'd love for you to watch it.

What it means to be a REDer:

Quotes from REDers 

“I’m definitely not untouchable to life’s chaos, but my new found resilience and fitness therapy coping strategies to help support my mental health, is something I’m incredible proud of" REDer, Louise - as pictured.

“For the first time ever, I’ve actually enjoyed January” REDer, Sam

“This was my first RED but it certainly won’t be my last.” REDer, Pam

“Doing RED was the boost I needed to get myself back out there again, and today, the first time in months, I actually managed a 5k again!” REDer, Seetal 

“By the time I got home my mood had completely changed from sad to cheerful, feeling energetic and ready to do homework with my eldest. That is why I will continue walking and running. Very powerful!” REDer, Emily

“Too busy to exercise? That used to be my excuse.” REDer, James

“Little did I know how much this challenge would help me!” REDer, Rob

“Thanks to the confidence I’ve built up during RED, I’ve just signed up to my first ever parkrun!” REDer, Simon 

“This morning I did something I’ve never done in my 38 years, I ran on my birthday” REDer, Louise

“Surely this has to be the best bunch of people on the planet?!” REDer, Jon 

At the age of 54, with no previous running experience, I signed up for my very first 10k. I wore my Mind vest with pride and ran every step with Sam in my heart. I hope that my contribution may help someone else’s loved one.

 - Carolyn
