Suffolk Mind is also supporting Mental Health Awareness Week.

Tobias Ellwood, minister for defence people and veterans, said the MoD was organising a series of events, talks and briefings this week to tackle the stigma of mental health and show a commitment to helping people overcome "the invisible wounds of war" as well as the physical ones. On a national scale, more than two in five (41%) businesses in the United Kingdom have seen an increase in episodes of mental health compared to five years ago.

Just like any disorder, it requires the suffering individual to recognize that they need help.

The two Princes have followed in the footsteps of their mother Princess Diana in championing Mental Health-related causes along with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Overall, by the age of 50, the study participants who had experienced higher job strain were up to 14 percent more likely to develop a common form of mental illness. Over four in 10 (42%) admit that awareness and understanding of mental health issues is still quite low across their organisation. One of these users was Ryan Farmer.

"Can I drive you to an appointment?" For me, the support I found through The Hub of Hope has given me the help I needed while I wait for the assessment. "It is such a brilliant resource".

"It's so easy to start a conversation with somebody with the word listen".

Towards that end, nationally recognized experts have guided local organizations and professionals to develop a cost-effective, viable plan to address our communities' growing mental health challenge: a state-of-the-art regional mental health treatment facility paired with comprehensive services.

And EY Partner Tony Wiedermann noted that "people really want leaders to come forward and say: you know what, I have dealt with [depression] myself; this is how I manage it". "You are never alone".

Speaking about today's recording, Siobhan Kenny, chief executive at Radiocentre, said: "Radio is coming together in the United Kingdom first today to shine a light on the important issue of mental health". For more information about Chasing the Stigma, head to the official Facebook page here.

The Harbor Bridge lights will be lit green, from May 15 until May 18, in observance of Mental Health Awareness Month.
