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.

A recent report has called for rules for employers to take mental health and stress seriously.

Launched to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, the £320,000 cash injection from the Bank of Scotland Foundation is set to be split between a variety of groups. And yet it is still much harder for most of us to talk about our mental, rather than our physical, health and this is no different in the workplace.

There isn't a more important issue in today's workplace than people's health and well-being, and we're seeing that numerous main risks to our health are now psychological. 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.

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.

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.

Work is now underway to take forward the 40 actions within the strategy, all of which aim to improve the delivery of adult as well as child and adolescent mental health services.

A poll by The Handmade Fair, the ultimate creative day out by Kirstie Allsopp, has just found that 75 per cent of Brits believe crafting can benefit mental health or wellbeing, with a quarter of crafters saying it had helped them deal with a mental health issue such as depression or anxiety.

The broadcast, which is created to encourage more people to talk openly about their mental health, includes The Duke of Cambridge saying: "Just starting a conversation on mental health can make all the difference, when you talk about something you have less reason to fear it". 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. While among the 20.2 million adults in the US who have experienced a substance use disorder, about 50.5%-10.2 million adults-had a co-occurring mental illness.

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