  • 48% of people stay silent on mental health in the workplace study finds

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.

Sister Amber says campaigns like this and Mental Health Awareness Week are vital to help people cope. 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".

"Stress is caused by so many things in our lives, things like debt, housing problems - sometimes it's about our own pressure we put on ourselves, whether it's pressure to do well in our education, or pressure to look good, or pressure at work, so there's lots of factors that give us stress in our lives".

"It is clear from this report there is still some way to go to make sure that stigma does not get in the way of open conversations about mental health".

Rachel Suff, senior employment relations adviser at CIPD, said: "We're seeing a significant increase in the number of reported mental health issues among employees in United Kingdom organisations". Research has shown that 16 million people in the United Kingdom experience a mental health problem each year, and stress often plays a significant role.

But Conservative MSP Adam Tomkins said: 'It's profoundly regrettable that we don't have a deal in Scotland to allow us to move on. MSPs voted against the legislation by 93 votes to 30, with the Scottish Nationalists backed by Liberal Democrats and Labour .


We know we need to listen to stakeholders, people working in mental health services and of course, the people who have personally used those services, when we are developing policy. Mental health conditions are real, and a common problem that is treatable.

Philip Grant, chairman of the Bank of Scotland Foundation, said: "As anyone can be affected and there can also be an impact on the lives of others, including family and friends, our new fund will vitally allow people across Scotland to benefit from a variety of much needed local services and personal support".

"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". "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".

Periods of ill health can be recovered from if treated so let's do not forget to make time to look after our own mental wellbeing and be mindful of those we are close to.

In a mentally healthy organisation everyone should feel comfortable talking about stress.
