Mental Health Awareness Month, also known as Mental Health Month, educates the public about the reality of mental illnesses.
It has been great to witness the upturn in mental health awareness over the past few years with more business leaders, celebrities and even the royal family talking about the issue.
The broadcast is created to encourage more people to talk openly about their mental health and was spearheaded by Radiocentre and Radio Academy with support from Harry and William's Royal Foundation as part of their Heads Together campaign.
The survey of 1,000 21-25 year old graduates also found that 88% believed there was still a stigma attached to telling others about their mental health condition. 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".
"Two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our lifetime, with stress often being a key factor".
"Radio is coming together in a United Kingdom first today to shine a light on the important issue of mental health".
National bodies including the CMI are calling for managers to lead the fight against stress and mental health disorders at work.CMI's own research - the Quality of Working Life report - shows that the "always-on culture" is responsible for managers working an extra 44 days more than their contracted hours per year.
Work is now underway to take forward the 40 actions within the strategy, all of which aim to improve the delivery of adult as well as child and adolescent mental health services.
In the minute-message, the Duke of Cambridge said: "Just starting a conversation on mental health can make all the difference, when you talk about something you have less reason to fear it".
"Our mental health is just as important as our physical health and Mental Health Awareness Week offers an important opportunity to focus everyone's attention on the issues, reminding people they are not alone and helping end the stigma".
As we achieve success in encouraging more people to seek treatment for ill mental health we can experience pressures on service capacity.
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. So if you, or someone you know, feel that talking could help with any worries you have about mental health, these numbers might be useful.
