Harbor Bridge glows green in observance of Mental Health Awareness

Speaking about today's recording, Siobhan Kenny, chief executive at Radiocentre, said: "Radio is coming together in the United Kingdom first today to shine a light on the important issue of mental health". In fact, MIND found that four in five people with mental health problems have lived in housing that has made their mental health worse. "Only by challenging any potential stigma and increasing awareness around mental health at work can we start to break the silence and start to build more open and inclusive workplaces".

According student and graduate careers app Debut, only 15% graduates described the mental health support provided by their employer as "good", while a third of graduates said their employer's welfare provision was "poor".

55% of United Kingdom organisations have seen an increase in the number of reported common mental health conditions over the last 12 months, compared to 41% in 2016.

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. We now know through brain scans that the brain is affected and we do have medications that can help.

The center also aims at taking a #mentalhealth screening so that it can help in determining if you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.

You can also observe Mental Health Awareness Month by other means also, like by getting a mental health checkup, attending a local community advocacy event, or by getting certified in Mental Health First Aid.

A strong workforce is at the centre of our plans so we are investing to provide 800 additional mental health workers in key locations such as A&E departments, GP practices, police stations and prisons.

The broadcast, which is created to encourage more people to talk openly about their mental health, includes The Duke of Cambridge saying: "Just starting a conversation on mental health can make all the difference, when you talk about something you have less reason to fear it".

The minute is supported by the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign which launched in 2016 to change the national conversation on mental health and tackle the stigma that prevents people from getting the help they need. Things are improving but we are committed to working together with NHS Boards, schools, councils, and other partners to ensure we have the right support in place at the right time for anyone who may need it.

When our mental illnesses lie to us and say we can't do anything or that we aren't good enough, it can be soul-destroying.
