Every Mind Matters
Every Mind Matters is here to help you manage and maintain your mental health, as good mental health makes such a difference. It helps us to relax more, achieve more and enjoy our lives more.
We all go through ups and downs
We all experience times when we're struggling or not coping as we might like, or where our circumstances and life events make things extremely difficult and challenging. It's part of life, and sometimes it's OK to not be OK.
Our mental health is not fixed, it's fluid, and just as it can be affected by our life experiences, events and circumstances, there are things we can do to improve it and help others.
There are simple things you can do
Just like your physical health, there are things you can do to look after your mental health and wellbeing, no matter who you are or how you're feeling.
Every Mind Matters is where everyone can make a start. There are simple actions and steps we can all take that can help us manage feelings of stress, anxiety, low mood or when we are struggling to get to sleep.
From tips on how to get more physical activity, to mindful breathing exercises and advice on how to reframe unhelpful thoughts, all the information and advice in Every Mind Matters has been developed with experts and approved by the NHS. Royal College of General Practitioners has endorsed Every Mind Matters.

Modern life makes it hard to be healthy
Without knowing it, by the time we reach our 40s and 50s many of us will have dramatically increased our chances of becoming ill later in life. Whether we are eating the wrong things, drinking more than we should, continuing to smoke despite everything we know, or just not being active enough, all of these small things can add up to an unhealthy you.
But, it's not always easy to make a change in our busy lives – tempting treats in easy reach, bigger portions for everything we eat and technology that allows us to shop, stay in touch and be entertained without ever having to leave the sofa. Modern life is ganging up on us.
The good news is we can fight back.
