Every Mind Matters this winter

Every Mind Matters this winter

The colder weather and darker evenings can have an adverse effect on the way some people feel and can leave them struggling to cope during the winter months.

Therefore, it’s vital that we protect our mental health, just as we do our physical health throughout the cold season – ensuring we can recognise the signs that we need support and that we know how to access it.

We’re supporting national efforts by Public Health England (PHE) who have launched Every Mind Matters, a campaign to empower people take control of their own mental health.

We want everyone in Essex to prioritise their mental wellbeing this winter and feel confident when taking action to protect themselves. To discover the simple steps you can take to look after your mental health, take a short quiz which will help shape your personalised mind plan.

You can find this, as well as information about local mental health support and services, on the Livewell campaign website.
