Health bosses in Milton Keynes are supporting the Every Mind Matters campaign to encourage the public to be more aware of their mental health.

An introductory video promoting the platform also features narratives by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry.

The film screened on Sky, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and MTV on Monday evening.

They include the actresses Gillian Anderson and Glenn Close, singer Professor Green, former England cricketer Andrew Flintoff, television presenter Davina McCall, and Bake Off star Nadiya Hussain.

Some users expressed that the campaign was "important", but that it should be followed by an investment in mental health services. Every Mind Matters aims to help people to better handle life's ups and downs. Hancock shared: "I want to put on the record my admiration for the way that the Princes and the Duchesses have contributed to changing how our society here in the United Kingdom - and I think around the world - think about mental health, and their own bravery in speaking out about it".

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the tool will empower patients to be proactive and invest in their mental health in the same way as physical health.

That's why Mind has been helping develop Every Mind Matters, to empower people with the tools they need to deal with everyday causes of stress, anxiety, low mood and trouble sleeping.
