More workers ask for mental health help

Retirement saving worries risk to mental health

The message will be voiced by Lady Gaga, Dame Judi Dench, David Harewood and Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, as well as special guests The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who are all lending their voice to raise awareness of mental health.

So this Mental Health Awareness Week, we wanted to highlight the five ways in which crafting can help you cope with the symptoms of mental health problems. The fact that just 38 per cent feel that their workplace encourages an open culture around mental health is concerning, particularly given the research by Stevenson and Farmer which showed that poor mental health at work could be costing the United Kingdom economy as much as £99 billion per year.

Axe, the deodorant, has adopted a new strategy that is far removed from its earlier approach and which seeks to reassure its audience that "it's OK to screw up", while Lynx, the United Kingdom version of Axe, partnered with CALM, a charity dedicated to raising awareness of the disturbing statistic that suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.

A new mental health guide for civil service managers, available through HR, has been developed in partnership with the Cross Government Mental Health Network to offer practical support to managers. Over 19 percent of the entire US population is estimated to have had an anxiety disorder in the past year.

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.

A new study, published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry, asks precisely this.

The survey is open now and will close on Friday 27 July, and the more people that complete the survey questionnaire during this time will help us to get the best picture of mental health at work in the UK. But you can use hand-making and crafts to remind yourself that you have the ability to create something lovely.

Harvey and his colleagues accounted for potential factors outside of the workplace that might have influenced the results, such as marital separation, financial stress, a death in the family, or health issues.

They also welcome other organizations as well to join the movement in spreading the word that mental health is something that everyone should care about.

Through sharing resources employees to can be encouraged and empowered to take ownership of their own mental health.

Tim Coupland, mental health nurse and RCN Mental Health Forum member who is the proposer of today's debate, said: "At some point during our working lives, every health professional will come into contact with someone who is feeling suicidal". This in stark contrast to 58 per cent of people choosing to work when in poor physical health. Our employees' emotional wellbeing should not be one of them.

"A lot of times it's starting with a good assessment, so that might be finding a good psychologist or clinician in the area to do that", Buck said. "This can be achieved", he goes on to explain, "through initiatives that involve workers in as many decisions as possible".

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.
