Two leading BPS members were among the clinical advisers to the high-profile Every Mind Matters campaign launched today.
Former BPS president Professor Peter Kinderman and Society Fellow Professor Paul Salkovskis were both involved in planning the Public Health England initiative.
Professor Kinderman said:
“Every Mind Matters has been designed to raise public awareness of the importance of our mental health and offer practical help, while avoiding labelling and the imposition of professional perspectives.
It will help people address problems that are affecting their wellbeing, and encourage positive steps to mental health.”
The Every Mind Matters website features a short quiz that gives people tailored advice on improving their mental wellbeing.
To publicise the campaign, a film written by Richard Curtis and narrated by the Dukes and Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex will be shown by several television channels this evening in their 8.45 commercial break.
