For World Mental Health Day, the Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign focuses on “What works for me”, with simple tips offered by the NHS endorsed Mind Plan quiz that show ‘there are little things we can all do to look after our mental health’. The Every Mind Matters website showcases simple NHS endorsed practical tips from sufferers and videos from experts on dealing with COVID-19, stress and anxiety, boosting your mood, sleeping and what you can do to help others.
Every Mind Matters shares goals in raising awareness and promoting mental health and wellbeing with a range of partners. For Mental Health Day we’re sharing their expertise and insights.
