Millennials face more pressure at the workplace than older colleagues

Millennials face more pressure at the workplace than older colleagues

This week I'm joining the Mental Health Foundation in marking Mental Health Awareness Week.

The Mental Health Foundation, who initiated the campaign, have put together a guide, with an introduction to what stress is, what the signs of stress are, what simple steps you can take when feeling stressed and provide practical advice for preventing it. But it's clear that there is still more to do to ensure we transform this increased awareness into actions that create more supportive and open working environments. "Only by challenging any potential stigma and increasing awareness around mental health at work can we start to break the silence and start to build more open and inclusive workplaces".

"Two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our lifetime, with stress often being a key factor".

Siobhan Kenny, Chief Executive at Radiocentre, said: "Radio is coming together in a United Kingdom first today to shine a light on the important issue of mental health".

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

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.

Dog saves fellow canine from drowning
Noticing Remus struggling to get out of the pool, Smokey, the other pup, first made an attempt at showing his pal to the steps. But when that didn't work, Remus finally jumped in, and used his body to push Smokey out of the water.

Payet says he is fit to play in Europa League final
The only other European trophy won by a French club remains PSG's victory in the now defunct Cup Winners' Cup in 1996. Zidane, from the La Castellane neighbourhood in north Marseille , never played for the club.

Thousands took part in the 2016 and 2017 surveys and we need your help to make 2018 the biggest yet.

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. Mental health conditions are real, and a common problem that is treatable.

Of the 70% who said they would be too scared to admit they had a mental health issue, 83% suggested they would be more inclined to tell their employer if they offered an "off the record" - or fully anonymous - support service, separated from their employment record.

All of this work is underpinned by a significant financial commitment of £150 million over five years. We need to come to see mental health like we would any other illness - like diabetes or high blood pressure, that it's just something that affects us. This poignant moment of reflection, a first in United Kingdom radio, is a wonderful opportunity to help us improve how we support each other emotionally.

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. "Listening is such an important thing".

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