New campaign launched to support young people's mental health

The past few months have been hard on everyone, including children and young people.

As a group, young people are currently reporting higher levels of anxiety than the adult population, and parents and carers are understandably concerned, with over half of parents saying their children's mental wellbeing has been one of their biggest worries during COVID.

In response, Public Health England (PHE) is launching the next phase of the Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign, designed to support children and young people's mental wellbeing.

The campaign will be aimed at parents, carers, teachers and young people themselves, and will be delivered in partnership with the NHS and the nation's leading
mental health and children's charities.

It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may be struggling with their mental health and show the actions they can take to support
them. In addition to the advice for parents and carers the site also provides tools to help young people build resilience and equips them to look after their mental
wellbeing.

It will promote the Better Health - Every Mind Matters website which offers new NHS-approved tips and advice on supporting the mental wellbeing of children and young people.
