Every Mind Matters campaign launched by Public Health England

Public Health England (PHE) has launched a new Every Mind Matters campaign, which provides tips and advice to boost the mental wellbeing of children and young people, and equip parents and carers with the knowledge to support them.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an increase in feelings of anxiety, loneliness, sadness, and stress in young people, and parents and carers now cite the mental wellbeing of their children as their biggest worry.

PHE states ‘The new advice available on the Every Mind Matters website has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities, including Young Minds, The Mix, Place2Be and The Anna Freud Centre. It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may be struggling with their mental health and support them, and also provides advice that can help maintain good mental wellbeing.’
