World Mental Health Day, 10th October 2022
There are small things we can all do to help be kind to our mind and these can make a big difference to how we feel.
That’s why a new Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign is being launched, helping us find those little things we can all do to look after our mental health and showing us how they can add up to make a big difference; helping us to lead happier, healthier lives and cope with life’s challenges.
Your Mind Plan
At its heart is the free, NHS-approved Mind Plan.
By answering five short questions, people get a personalised mental health action plan, providing practical tips to help them deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, sleep better and feel more in control.
World Mental Health Day
The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10th October every year.
A key aim is to ensure mental health is equally important to physical health.
World Mental Health Day is also a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.
