Every Mind Matters - NHS Endorsed Website

Every Mind Matters is a free, NHS-endorsed online resource available to help empower people to look after their mental health and support others. At the heart of Every Mind Matters, which launched in October 2019, is ‘Your Mind Plan’ – a digital tool that enables people to create their own action plan, to help them take simple, practical steps to look after their mental wellbeing and that of those around them. To date, over two million Mind Plans have been created.

Looking after your mental wellbeing is just as important as looking after your physical wellbeing, especially during coronavirus (COVID-19). Using this resource can not only help you  but it can help you when discussing these topics with others, and also find further support if necessary.

Young Minds Matter

Supporting our Young People.

The past few months have been hard on everyone, including our kids. But there are lots of things we can do to support them at this time. Better Health - Every Mind Matters will help you find what’s right for your children - whether it’s listening to them talk about the challenges they’re facing or helping them develop skills to cope with their emotions.

Better Health - Every Mind Matters provides tips and advice to help parents and carers support children and young people when coping with stressors including starting new schools or colleges and building relationships with friends again.

Advice for listening, understanding and supporting

  • Be there to listen: Ask the children and young people you look after how they are doing regularly so they get used to speaking about their feelings.
  • Stay involved in their life: Show interest in their life and the things that are important to them.
  • Support positive routines: Be a positive role model and support positive behaviours including regular bed routines, healthy eating and getting active.
  • Encourage their interests: Being active, creative, learning things and being a part of a team are all good for mental health. Support children and young people to explore their interests.
  • Take what they say seriously: help the children and young people you look after feel valued in what they say and help them work through difficult emotions.


We're here for you

Parenting can be tough, and it's important to make sure you look after your own mental wellbeing as well as your family's. Along with the benefits for you, doing so can also help you support others when they need it. Better Health – Every Mind Matters is here to support you.
