Mental Health

We don’t need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health. There are lots of things we can do to protect our mental health and stop issues from getting worse, just as we do with our physical health.

Every Mind Matters is Public Health England (PHE)’s first national mental health campaign. It aims to support all adults to feel more confident in understanding mental health, and to take actions to improve and manage how they are feeling.

Every Mind Matters offers a range of useful resources including information on signs of common mental health issues, practical self-care tips, and where to seek further support. It has a free NHS-approved online tool which will help you build a self-care action plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood, improve your sleep and help you feel more in control.

Developed with clinical and academic experts, national mental health organisations, and input from people with experience of mental ill health, the plan will show you how to build simple changes into your daily life – such as reframing unhelpful thoughts, breathing exercises and increasing physical activity.
