Mind your head
We are always proud to support the work of other great charitable organisations in our wonderful valley!
Mind Your Head is a new LGBTQIA+ mental health campaign in partnership between The Brunswick Centre and Happy Valley Pride and funded by Calderdale Council and West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership.
Did you know that the LGBTQIA+ community are more likely to suffer from mental health issues but are far less likely to seek help?
1 in 8 LGBT people aged 18-24 (13%) said they’ve attempted to take their own life in the last year.
Half of LGBT people (52 per cent) said they’ve experienced depression in the last year.
One in seven LGBT people (14 per cent) have avoided treatment for fear of discrimination because they’re LGBT.

Mind Your Head aims to raise awareness of mental health issues within the LGBTQIA+ community while also providing access to local, regional, and national resources.
Events have included the participation in Happy Valley Pride, an online event which took a look into anxiety within the community and how to better understand and cope with it, and also another online event which is yet to come is a guided hypnotherapy session which runs on 14th October at 8pm. All these events are free and there are many more to come!
