"The Calderdale and Kirklees Recovery College creative wellbeing walks offer more than just a stroll through scenic paths; they provide a lifeline for those grappling with mental health issues. As someone who was thrust into the isolating world of working from home and subsequently diagnosed with depression, these walks became a pivotal part of my healing journey."
