A new NHS campaign is urging us all to be more aware of our mental health – to know when we need support, and how to seek that help.
Public Health England’s ‘Every Mind Matters’ is the first national NHS campaign focussing on mental health.
The campaign encourages people to be more aware of their mental health, to know when they need support and above all, not to let issues get worse and to seek support.
The new Every Mind Matters campaign also promotes a number of simple steps that can help people to spot the signs of common mental health concerns, provides practical self-care tips and guidance and, importantly, explains when to seek further support.
It also has a free NHS-approved online tool on the Every Mind Matters website, which helps people build a plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, improve their sleep and help them feel more in control.
Cllr Sean Donnelly, Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said
“I’m delighted to support the Every Mind Matters campaign and hope that we can help to raise awareness of the important issue of looking after your own mental health and be able to support others. We know that one in four people experience a mental health problem each year. Every Mind Matters supports everyone to feel more confident in taking action to take care of their mental health and wellbeing.”
