The Mental Health Awareness minute included two royal princes and stars of stage, screen, sport and music delivering their message to one of radio's biggest ever collective audiences.

The call to action comes from Jake Mills, Liverpool comedian and CEO of charity Chasing the Stigma (CTS), ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week (14th - 20th May 2018) - nearly five years on from his own suicide attempt.

All of us live increasingly busy lives in and it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed by our many responsibilities whether it's work commitments, financial worries, difficulties in relationships or the pressures of social media and information overload. The good news is that we know how much businesses take it seriously, the overwhelming majority want to support their people. "But, improving awareness and understanding is a crucial first step that all employers need to take and we're proud to set an example, not only for the retail industry, but for employers across the United Kingdom". "It is therefore an obvious choice for us all to come together to talk about the things that matter most in our lives".

Every year, one in four people in the United Kingdom will experience a mental health problem, according to mental health charity Mind.

Emilia Clarke says that the #MeToo movement needs work to be sustained
Emilia also admitted she's "sad" to be leaving the show after starring on it since the beginning in 2011. The actor also spoke out against shows who didn't offer both female and male leads equal pay.

Being aware of how people around you may be feeling and not being afraid to ask 'are you okay?' can play a huge part in making people feel comfortable about opening up.

Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said: "As we mark Mental Health Awareness Week, it is worrying to discover that half of employees still don't feel able to speak out".

More than 1,000 validated mental health support networks have already registered on the web app, with the number increasing each day, and it has been endorsed by the Samaritans and 25 other national mental health support organisations.

23% (39% in large companies) think their business is open about mental health issues.

So this Mental Health Awareness Week, we wanted to highlight the five ways in which crafting can help you cope with the symptoms of mental health problems.

One way employers can support staff is by providing confidential telephone support services through their EAP or to engage an external service such as RedArc, a national long-term support service run by professional nurses.

Overall, by the age of 50, the study participants who had experienced higher job strain were up to 14 percent more likely to develop a common form of mental illness. Switching off from work was the most popular action (27%), followed by seeking colleague support (26%) and listening to music (13%).

Mrs Sale hopes the storyline will help people who are struggling to seek help and encourage people who believe someone they know might be in difficulty to seek help. And more importantly, people experiencing mental illnesses will be treated with respect, acceptance and be more apt to get the care they need.
