With 12.5 million working days lost to stress, anxiety and depression a year ago, this indicates how vital it is that more managers receive mental health training. Elaine Ducharme visited the show to discuss the history of mental illness and what we can do to improve our overall health.

As part of that, yesterday saw a unique execution during Mental Health Awareness Week when the BBC and commercial radio stations joined forces to broadcast the same message at the same time about the importance of mental health.

"Two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our lifetime, with stress often being a key factor". We now know through brain scans that the brain is affected and we do have medications that can help.

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.

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 Pirate FM.

Some states, like NY , have decriminalized marijuana, making it a violation and not a crime to possess small amounts of cannabis. There are often no punitive, rehabilitative or deterrent purposes in these cases, the DA said.

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.

Since 1949, Mental Health America and their affiliates across the country have led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings.

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

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. As well as providing company and fun, radio can be an important lifeline for listeners.

Roger Cutsforth, Chief Executive at The Radio Academy, said: "We have a responsibility to recognise the unique place we in radio occupy in people's lives. But, improving awareness and understanding is a crucial first step that all employers need to take and we're proud to set an example, not only for the retail industry, but for employers across the United Kingdom".
