Calderdale Open Minds Website for Children and Young People

The website is intended to provide advice, information, support and signposting to young people about emotional health and wellbeing.


Adults across the country are being encouraged to take a few minutes out of their day to get to know their heart age by taking a free online ‘Heart Age Test’ which asks for physical and lifestyle information to determine if your heart is at a higher age than your actual age.

Having a heart age older than your actual age means that you are at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke. It is estimated that over 50 deaths a day from these conditions could be prevented if people had a better understanding of their heart health.

The Heart Age Test will

  • Tell you your heart age compared to your real age
  • Explain why it’s important to know your blood pressure and cholesterol number
  • Give advice on how to reduce your heart age.

To find out your Heart Age search ‘Heart Age’ or go to

If you’re aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition you may be eligible for a free NHS Health Check. The check is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

If you think you might be eligible for an NHS Health Check, and you haven’t already had one in the last 5 years, please speak to a member of the reception team to find out more.
