It’s part of the Better Health Every Mind Matters campaign, which aims to empower people to look after their mental wellbeing, with a focus on addressing the four most commonly reported mental health concerns: anxiety, low mood, stress and trouble sleeping.

At its heart is the free, NHS-approved Mind Plan, available on the Every Mind Matters website.

By answering five short questions anyone can get a personalised mental health action plan which provides practical tips to help manage stress and anxiety, boost their mood, sleep better and feel more in control.

People can also join a four-week email support programme where they can get reminders, swap new tips and are encouraged to make looking after their mental wellbeing part of their everyday routine.

If you, or someone you know, is experiencing an emotional crisis, Samaritans can be phoned for free from any phone on 116 123.
