Most employees (72 per cent) want employers to champion the cause of mental health and well-being, according to a survey published today - World Mental Health Day.

World Mental Health Day is a day when this can be observed and people can take action. 7% said they had been physically attacked by colleagues or customers in the a year ago, rising to 13% of blue-collar workers, 15% of BAME people, one in five (20%) non-binary people and almost a third (30%) of senior leaders.

Divulging more about the mental health care, Mr. Brahm Mohindra said that there is a tendency of experimentation in young age group leading to indulgence in alcohol and illicit drug abuse which may lead to the mental health issues among youth.

Depression was the third leading cause of ill-health among adolescents, with suicide being the second leading cause of death among those aged 15 to 29 years, he said.

As part of the government's biggest increase in research and development spending, we announced last month the creation of eight new Mental Health Networks to bring together researchers from health to the humanities, to work collaboratively with charities and people who have experience of mental health issues.

"I had CBT while on Strictly because I had stage fright and it was the first time I thought about mental health and the fact that you can change the way you think and make yourself more comfortable by talking to someone".

The National Mental Health at Work report, commissioned by Business in the Community in partnership with Mercer, has found that 72% of LGBTQ+ people have experienced mental health issues as a result of work. And we need to build on efforts such as our own current Mental Health Awareness Week and the "Like Minds, Like Mine" campaign that promote a healthy and respectful discussion about mental health.

By law, employers should consider making reasonable adjustments if you are at a major disadvantage compared to other people who do not have a mental health problem.

Research has also found around 75 per cent of mental health disorders appear by the age of 24, while over the last decade nearly five times as many students have disclosed a mental health condition to their university compared to ten years ago.

"At present, every nation in the world is a "developing" country when it comes to mental health", the pair wrote. "If we can construct a system that can respond to young people at risk, when and where they need support - be that in the community, in primary or emergency care, or within tertiary services - we will undoubtedly be better placed to reverse the devastating trend we have seen over this past 10 years".

Dr Kaluwa described mental health as a complex social issue that could not be addressed by government alone or any single institution, as it went beyond health, to include sectors such as education and local government.
