Better Health – Get active No matter how much you do, physical activity is good for your body and mind. Adults should aim to be active every day. Some is good – more is better still. Includes Couch to 5k.
Better health – Every Mind Matters Having good mental health helps us relax more, achieve more and enjoy our lives more. We have expert advice and practical tips to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing.
#October 2022 update# The latest phase of the campaign provides practical advice on managing mental wellbeing direct to the audience by delivering the opportunity to actually try self-care actions immediately in ad breaks and social media posts.
The campaign shares short “demo” exercises and advice that encourage viewers to seek out and try more from the Better Health – Every Mind Matters website.
For example, we will use a 15 second advert to take viewers through a breathing exercise to show how simple, but effective, self-care can be.
Supported by a wide range of resources for partners to order and download free from the Campaign Resource Centre the campaign will launch across Video on demand (VOD), PR, social, search and digital through October and November.

Every Mind Matters loneliness webpage There is now substantial evidence that having a lack of social connections significantly increases the risk of premature mortality. Loneliness can have a huge impact on our wellbeing, but there are lots of simple actions you can take to help lift yourself or others out of loneliness
#January update# Following the success of last year’s national campaign, which saw some very positive steps towards people taking action to help feelings of loneliness, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will be launching their 6 week loneliness campaign activity on 30th January as part of the Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign.
Feeling lonely is something that all of us can experience at any point and it can have a huge impact on our wellbeing. It’s important to remember that these feelings can pass and that there are lots of ways we can help each other too.
This campaign, focussing on those aged 16-34, will encourage people to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’, through simple, low cost actions to help someone who may be feeling lonely, knowing that this is likely to help them feel less lonely too. The England-only campaign is running now until mid-March 2023
The campaign, which is being supported by Mental Health Ambassador Dr. Alex George, is pointing people towards the Every Mind Matters loneliness webpage, where there is advice for ways to help yourself or others who may be feeling lonely, and suggested support routes.
We have a range of resources which are now available to download from the Campaign Resource Centre, including:
If you would like to show your support for the campaign’s launch today, then please feel free to re-share the following posts from DCMS in collaboration with Dr Alex on your channels.
