Two thirds of workers will be open about mental health at work

World Mental Health Day 2019 Mental Health Awareness

About 18 million people experienced a major depressive episode. This project is conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Health, concluded the statement.

Today is World Mental Health Day and comedy is getting involved. Almost two in five (38 per cent) of the employers surveyed said fewer than 10 per cent of their staff have a mental health condition, whereas the real figure is more than double that at 24 per cent. The survey also said that while 58 percent of millennials believed it is very or extremely important that a workplace have a culture that supports mental health, only 29 percent of baby boomers felt the same way.

Kenneth Cole has formed The Mental Health Coalition, an initiative that will bring together nonprofits, businesses, brands, celebrities and influencers in a coordinated effort to destigmatize mental health conditions.

While no broadcaster or content provider should shy away from hard themes - and while those of us struggling with mental illness certainly want our experiences represented - it's easy to use mental illness as a way of upping dramatic stakes without thinking about how it affects (or reflects) the lives of viewers. The network partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) and the local affiliate NAMI NYC on the creation of these bumpers.


Safe In Our World, a new charity created to promote awareness of mental health issues and drive positive change within the video games industry and beyond, has launched to coincide with World Mental Health Day.

The Doctor Commentaries will feature discussions about relevant scenes from HBO Shows with clinical psychologist and mental health champion, Dr. Ali Mattu, who will share his insights from a mental health perspective.

As part of the M-indful initiative, the restaurant group will also offer its employees access to Spill, an app which enables its users to consult a personal counsellor without booking an appointment. The Pakistan Association of Mental Health estimates that more than 34pc of the population is affected by mental illness, but they remain deprived of adequate treatment, mainly due to the lack of facilities and the societal stigma attached to the subject. The series will debut with an episode featuring Girls on October 10th.

Americans experience high rates of mental illness, as one in five Americans experience it each year.
