UK radio to join forces for Mental Health message

Mental health affects 1 in 5 Americans and stigma creates a toxicity to the individual causing shame, fear and silence preventing the individual from seeking treatment. The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that 1 in 5 adults in the US experiences mental illness in a given year, and almost 1 in 25 adults in the USA lives with a serious mental illness, while approximately 1 in 5 teens (ages 13 to 18) experiences a severe mental disorder at some point during their life.

This community-wide, high-energy family/pet-friendly event brings together diverse agencies from across Tucson and Pima County to deliver useful information about mental health in a fun, informal setting.

Mental health advocates, he says, "are fortunate not only to have a community with so many opportunities for positive mental health experiences", but they also have a time "to showcase some ideas of awesome activities that people can do at any time".

Trudeau says if there is one thing people walk away with from her presentation, it's to "start the conversation".

BOB fm is preparing to join forces with 300 other commercial and BBC radio stations to tackle the stigma of mental health. "The only way you can get better is to accept it and reach out for help". MHA also has found that youth mental health is worsening.

"The problem with people with mental illness is they don't tell the truth".

After two of her three years in intensive recovery involving medication and therapy, Trudeau described a day she cracked a joke to the doctor, and him recognizing it as a breakthrough.

"I'm a person that, no matter what, understands that we all go through things and everybody deserves a chance to make it", he said. "If you keep it buried down, then your life will fall apart". However, we have found that when staff are encouraged to talk openly with colleagues, in a workshop for example, they realize just how many people either suffer from issues themselves or know someone who does.

"Get someone to listen to you if you feel you're in trouble, because being listened to is the beginning of the healing".

Her aim is to raise awareness of mental health issues as well as money for the Mental Health Foundation, which is behind Mental Health Awareness Week, and the mental health charity MIND.

Aggregate Industries are calling on construction companies to focus on mental health in the workplace after seeing the success their own programme has had on the company's workforce.
