'We don't need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health' - this is one of the key messages from a new campaign to improve mental health across the UK.
Public Health England's Every Mind Matters Campaign encourages adults to be more aware of their mental health and helps them to discover simple steps to look after their mental health and wellbeing.
There are lots of things we can do to protect ourselves and prevent problems escalating, just as we do with our physical health.
Every Mind Matters offers a range of useful resources that help spot the signs of common mental health concerns, provides practical self-care tips and guidance and, importantly, explains when to seek further support.
It also has a free NHS-approved online tool on the Every Mind Matters website, which helps people build an action plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, improve their sleep and help them feel more in control.
