A new mental health campaign to support children and young people has launched this week.
Data shows that over half of parents in the South West said that the mental wellbeing of their children has been one of their biggest worries during coronavirus (COVID-19).
Public Health England launched the new Better Health Every Mind Matters campaign on Tuesday, 8 September. The NHS-approved campaign directly targets young people aged 13-18 and parents/carers of children and young people from 5-18, with additional engagement provided via school resources.
The campaign aims to:
- Equip parents/carers and young people to take action to protect and improve children and young people’s mental wellbeing
- Build mental resilience to navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and evolving mental health challenges
- Provide support for those children at greater risk of worsening mental health.
Check out the Better Health Every Mind Matters website for more great tips and advice, which has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities.
