New website launches to help children and their parents with mental wellbeing

By Good News Post

Every Mind Matters is a new way of empowering people to manage and improve their mental health.

It aims to help people take simple steps to look after their mental health, improve their mental wellbeing and support others.

It was launched after a worrying Public Health England survey found the level of mental health problems increasing across Britain..

Public Health England, in partnership with the NHS has launched the new website.

The Public Health England Survey found that a third of children are feeling more anxious and stressed after Lockdown.

And four in ten children have become more lonely than they were before March.

The agency has now launched Every Mind Matters campaign urging children to look out for signs of distress, laying out new tips for parents.

The campaign’s website offers a wealth of information to parents and carers of young children with the top tip urging them to “be there to listen”.

Dawn Carey of In Charley’s Memory mental health charity in Burnham on Sea, Weston-super-Mare, and elsewhere in Somerset, said: “This is an excellent new resource. We have to listen to young people and offer as much support and guidance as we possibly can.”
