Cornish charity backs mental health minute

16 May 2018

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.

Isle of Wight Radio is joining BBC and commercial radio stations around the UK to unite for the first time to broadcast a one-minute message about mental health.

53% agree that their organisation encourages openness about mental health and is effective at supporting people with mental ill health.

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

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. We now know through brain scans that the brain is affected and we do have medications that can help.

Lady Gaga, Dame Judi Dench, David Harewood and Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill also featured in the minute message.

We need something more real", Linde was quoted by the TT newswire as saying after the meeting. The broad thrust of Tuesday's report is positive for the British economy.

In an historic first and reaching one of radio's biggest ever collective audiences, the minute of simultaneous programming will unite stations all over the United Kingdom from national networks, including Spirit FM.

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.

Prince Harry adds: "If you do have the courage to speak about it, you really can make things better".

"Radio is coming together in a United Kingdom first today to shine a light on the important issue of mental health".

Somethin' Else Managing Director, Steve Ackerman, said: "Somethin' Else is delighted to be working with Radiocentre on the creative and production of this exciting moment in radio history".

"We're a super positive brand and we want to inspire kids with optimism and positivity, as well as a bit of mischief, so we looked for a charity partner who shared that philosophy and works to make kids' lives happier", said Iain Sawbridge, Beano Studios CMO. "This poignant moment of reflection, a first in United Kingdom radio, is a wonderful opportunity to help us improve how we support each othe remotionally".
