Alison Garbutt, head of strategic projects for WHSmith told us about their approach: "Addressing mental health in the workplace has been high on our agenda since we introduced Mental Health First Aid training".

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.

Pirate FM is asking for an extra minute of your time for mental health.

National Alliance on Mental Illness-Massachusetts - The National Alliance on Mental Illness is a nationwide advocacy group, representing families and people affected by mental health disorders in the United States.

But the fact is our mental health is just as important as our physical health and we all need to take better care of ourselves.

And it's something we all need to think about a lot more than we now do.

One employer taking action on mental health is WHSmith.

Thousands took part in the 2016 and 2017 surveys and we need your help to make 2018 the biggest yet. Our research finds that organisations with managers who are able to effectively promote good mental health are less likely to have seen an increase in reported common mental health conditions, which shows how crucial that capability is.

"Waiting lists and services, sadly, aren't always as quick as you'd like them to be but there's always loads of help online and loads of people who want to listen".

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.

There isn't a more important issue in today's workplace than people's health and well-being, and we're seeing that numerous main risks to our health are now psychological.

All of this work is underpinned by a significant financial commitment of £150 million over five years.

Four in 10 graduates claimed they had left university with mental health issues and 65% said they did not think their university did enough to support students with conditions. "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".
