Mental health and wellbeing 

Life can sometimes feel overwhelming. One in four people in the UK experienced mental health issues in the last year? This means that most people in England know someone with mental health problems or have personally experienced them. 
 
But we don’t need to wait until we are struggling with our mental health; there are lots of things we can do to protect ourselves and prevent problems escalating, just as we do with our physical health. 
 
Every mind matters has great tips on how to look after your mental health including a Mind Plan quiz that helps you feel more in control, deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood and help you sleep.
