Finding it tough? You're not alone

'Every Mind Matters' campaign offers useful tips for looking after mental wellbeing during lockdown

Public Health England’s Every Mind Matters has launched a new suite of tips and advice, focussed on looking after people’s mental wellbeing during the coronavirus outbreak.

With many feeling worried or anxious during these challenging times, there are lots of things we can all do to look after our own mental health and help others, to prevent these feelings from becoming more serious.

Every Mind Matters has been developed in partnership with clinicians, academics and leading mental health charities and offers authoritative, evidence based and practical support to the general public, as well as people with specific mental wellbeing concerns.

Every Mind Matters encourages people to complete a personal Mind Plan, a quick and free interactive tool offering tailored mental well-being advice. More than 1.9 million Mind Plans have already been created since the launch in October 2019.

The range of new Every Mind Matters resources, designed specifically to help manage our mental health during coronavirus, include a tailored COVID-19 Mind Plan, COVID-19 specific content for individuals and their loved ones, and support for specific mental wellbeing issues such as anxiety, stress, low mood and trouble sleeping.

As time goes on, the toll on our wellbeing is increasing. Please pass this information on to your colleagues, employees and anyone else who you think might find it helpful.
