Healthy Minds - Calderdale

Healthy Minds is the working name of Calderdale Wellbeing, a mental health charity based in Halifax, West Yorkshire.

We define mental health not just as the absence of distress but as a state of wellbeing in which each person realises their own potential.  We recognise different factors can affect people's wellbeing and so we provide a range of services for people according to their needs.

Only 25-35% of people with mental health problems access treatment at all; the remainder self-manage to varying degrees of success.  Healthy Minds offers a service to anyone who identifies as having mental health need.

We believe people are always doing the best they can and, provided with opportunities and support, they can thrive.
