The NHS in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is holding a series of events across the county, to discuss plans for the future of health and care.

Mental health is just as important as physical health, and there is always something we can do to improve it. Every Mind Matters, a new campaign lanched by Public Health England in partnership with the NHS, highlights the simple steps we can all take to look after our mental health and be better prepared for life’s ups and downs.
The campaign features a free NHS-approved online tool, which builds an action plan to help you deal with stress and anxiety, boost your mood, improve sleep and help you feel more in control.
Find your way to better mental health with Every Mind Matters. Visit https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/every-mind-matters to create ‘Your Mind Plan’ and discover simple steps to look after your mental health.
