Mind is proud to be continuing their exclusive partnership with RED January, a community initiative that encourages you to support your mental health by doing something active every single day. RED January can provide you with a goal and a focus in a characteristically tough month, empowering you to start the year as you mean to go on. All achievements are celebrated, no matter how big or small and the RED community is there to support you every step of the way.

Those taking part in RED January can choose to fundraise for Mind. In 2018, the RED community raised over £1 million, helping to continue our vital services. Many in the RED community have benefited directly from our information and resources.
