Detailed description

Public Health England and the NHS in partnership with a range of Mental Health Charities and partners across England have launched a new mental health resource called Every Mind Matters. The resource aims to support people to look after their own mental health and support others. The resource is a complement to services not a replacement and is there to support people to take action for themselves and others through completing a set of key questions, and receiving their own personalised mind plan. This is the web link: https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/every-mind-matters/ A high profile media campaign is underway to help get attention and focus to the resource. The launch day was successful in reaching large amounts of people across a range of media formats. This included a 3 minute film written and directed by Richard Curtis, and featuring a range of well known faces who have all struggled at some point in their lives with their mental health. The resource is based on evidence for self care and has been clinically assured by NHS England clinical advisers. The content has been developed with a range of national mental health partners and key mental health organisations, and the work has been supported by an Expert Advisory Group of key academics working in mental health. The resource has also been piloted in one part of England over a period of six weeks in October last year and a wider range of public testing has been undertaken including with people with lived experience of mental illness and with key community groups and people from BAME communities. The resource and its impact is being independently evaluated. And a new mental health literacy tool is being used and tested to measure impact. Base line data has been collected prior to launch from over 1,700 people. The work forms one part of a programme of work on improving the mental health literacy of the population.
