Discover simple steps to look after your mental health

A new national campaign provides useful resources to help you spot the signs of common mental health concerns.

Every Mind Matters

We don’t need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health; ‘Every Mind Matters’ encourages adults to be more aware of their mental health and help them discover simple steps to look after their mental health and wellbeing.

The new national campaign provides useful resources to help you spot the signs of common mental health concerns, offering practical self-care tips and guidance, and explains when to seek further support.

There is a free NHS-approved online tool on the Every Mind Matters website, which helps you build an action plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood, improve your sleep and help you feel more in control.
