Guidance for parents and carers on supporting children and young people's mental health and wellbeing

West Berkshire Council wants everyone to be more aware of their mental health and help you to discover simple steps to look after your mental health and wellbeing. That's why we're promoting the Public Health England and NHS Every Mind Matters campaign to all residents in West Berkshire. There is a free NHS online tool, which helps you to create a personalised action plan that gives you simple steps and practical advice that you can build into your daily routines in order to help you cope with life's ups and downs, and to get more out of life - whether it's how to deal with stress and anxiety, boost mood, improve sleep or feel more in control.
