RED January is a nationwide movement that’s empowering people across the UK to move every day in January to support their mental health.
As a nation we’re much less active in the winter, and that is an important reason why so many people feel lower in mood and rates of depressions are higher. RED January exists to support people through this time.
Research from the University of Oxford shows the positive impact taking part in the campaign has with more than half (54%) of participants stating they were more active and experienced a significant improvement in their happiness and a reduction in anxiety.
