There's a new way to look after your mental health

We don’t need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health; there are lots of things we can do to protect ourselves and prevent problems escalating, just as we do with our physical health.

The new 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.

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.

To learn more about how to look after your mental health and create your own action plan, visit the Every Mind Matters website.

If you feel like you need some support with your mental health, there are a number of services available in Dorset such as Steps 2 Wellbeing, support groups run by Dorset Mind and Dorset HealthCare's new crisis support service, Access Mental Health. Find our more on our mental health page.
