RED January is a community initiative, where the aim is to get active every day, your way, in support of your mental health.

Whether it’s running 5k or walking to work a new way, a morning swim or taking your bike for a spin, REDers in your community can join the thousands of people around the UK, kick-starting their 2019 in the most positive way.

RED January gives people a focus during a characteristically tough month and supports REDers through its online community.

Support your mental health this January by getting active every day, your way!

We’re excited to be partnering with RED January, a community initiative providing people with support and a focus during a characteristically tough month.


  • Cash poor in January? It’s free to take part
  • Provides a focus and goal
  • Provides community
  • Encourages healthy habits to take forward into the year.

We'll then post out your welcome pack and you'll receive regular updates in the next 4-6 weeks.

We look forward to going on this journey with you!


Once you've filled in the form and submitted your details, we'll post out your welcome pack which contains our fundraising guide, FREE shoelaces and sponsor forms. You'll then receive regular email updates.

You'll also have an option to join our Facebook group - keep a look out for the link in our newsletters. 

Until January, you can let everyone know you are taking part by sharing the content we send you. Don't forget to add yourself to the Facebook group and set up a JustGiving page if you're fundraising for us too. 

Just a quick note to say that due to the Christmas period you may not receive your RED pack until after Christmas. This is due to Royal Mail working a reduced service over the Christmas break and to give our staff the time to process and pack your goodies. All packs will be sent by w/c 7 Jan at the latest. 

The RED team at Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind will be here to support you until our office closes on 24th December for Christmas. We will then be back and ready to kick start January in the most positive way with you on 2nd January and are excited to go on this RED journey with you!


We look forward to going on this journey with you!
