Harry Leach 19th Oct, 2019

COUNTY chiefs are backing ‘Every Mind Matters’ a new way to help people manage their mental health.

Every Mind Matters is a ground-breaking online platform from Public Health England (PHE), in partnership with the NHS.

Research by PHE shows 83 per cent of people in West Midlands region have experienced early signs of poor mental health including feeling anxious, stressed, having low mood or trouble sleeping in the last 12 months.

While these can be a natural response to life’s challenges, they can become more serious if people don’t take action, with many people waiting too long do something about it.

Interim Director of Public Health for Worcestershire, Dr Kathryn Cobain said: “In Worcestershire we are getting behind this ground-breaking campaign to launch the Every Mind Matters platform.

“It shows the simple steps we can take to be better prepared to cope with life’s ups and downs that everyone experiences at some time. It includes a short quiz and is followed up with a personalised, interactive action plan.”
