This dovetails with the run-up to World Mental Health Day and follows research carried out by PHE showing that 83% of the public have experienced signs of poor mental health over the past year, with 27% of those delaying action by six months or more.

Dr Caroline Dollery, Mid Essex CCG's mental health clinical lead, said: "We all have times when life gets on top of us, so it's great to see a national campaign sharing simple steps that we can all take to look after our mental health". The new measure, which has been endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RGCP), will equip people with the tools to help themselves with a personalised self-care plan as a way to feel in control and deal with these problems at the root.

Every Mind Matters will benefit us all with an accessible tool to help manage our wellbeing at the click of a button, he adds.

A special film to promote Every Mind Matters has been written by Richard Curtis and directed by Rankin, narrated by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

'The health system should recognise that long term physical and mental health conditions often occur together and provide care that focuses on the whole person rather than a single condition, ' said Nikki Joule, policy manager at Diabetes UK.

"As someone who has spent most of my life working in the mental health sector, it has been fantastic to see the strides European Central Bank has taken to remove the stigma around mental health issues and to create a culture of acceptance in cricket".

Our health is affected by our circumstances, including having a job, friends and a roof over our heads. Every Mind Matters aims to help people to better handle life's ups and downs.

The platform also offers tips around alcohol use, food intake and exercise, as well as information on common mental health issues and the support available. That's where Every Mind Matters comes in, as a helpful complement to the work of NHS mental health teams and services.

The platform, which has been endorsed by the Royal College of Global Positioning System, will allow users to take a health quiz and offer them a personalised "mind plan" with practical tips around managing anxiety, low mood, sleep and stress.

The royals have been outspoken advocates of increasing mental health awareness and breaking the stigma of mental health since launching Heads Together in May 2016.

The campaign champions breathing control, physical activity, working on positive relationships and other small-scale steps that can be taken to help yourself move past a dark period.

48% of people in the West Midlands (45% in Birmingham) who experienced concerns about their mental health avoided social situations or contact from friends and family.
