An average of 183 referrals were made per school day in 2017/18.

The number of referrals who were not eligible for treatment has decreased from 60 in 2014/15 to 19 in 2017/18.

And mental health conditions such as work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 15.8 million sick days a year ago, according to Office for National Statistics (ONS) data.

THE number of referrals by schools seeking mental health treatment for troubled pupils has shot up by over a third in the last three years.

The total number of referrals since 2014 was 1,305.

The NSPCC warned increased demand for services was placing the system under pressure and jeopardising the well-being of thousands of children.

The NSPCC said some young people had told Childline that they only received specialist support when they reached crisis point, and have even asked Childline counsellors to act on their behalf to get help quicker. The NSPCC's Childline service has seen a 26-per-cent increase in the number of counselling sessions with children about mental health issues over the past four years.

Trump pledges action on prescription drug costs
Implementing such a program, though, raises many questions about what pricing data would be disclosed and under what authority. The President has proposed changes to the Medicare Part D program including offering free generic drugs to low-income seniors.

The minute is supported by the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign which launched in 2016 to change the national conversation on mental health and tackle the stigma that prevents people from getting the help they need.

Michelle O'Sullivan, RSSB's mental wellbeing specialist said rail companies are increasingly recognising the importance and benefits of addressing mental health issues with awareness-raising initiatives such as Mental Health Awareness Week, which are endorsed authentically by senior leadership teams.

The survey - commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation - also found that more than a third of people (35 percent) had experienced suicidal thoughts or feeling because of stress.

'We need a "local offer" laying out pathways and early interventions for children who are starting to run in trouble'.

Esther Rantzen, the Childline founder and president said: "We must make sure that Childline is adequately funded so it isn't left vulnerable and can be there for the children who have nowhere else to turn".

Almost three out of five (57 per cent) of those who said a colleague or employee had spoken to them about a mental health issue were "glad they could confide in me", but one in four admitted they felt uninformed, 21 per cent said they felt embarrassed and a further 17 per cent did not feel equipped to know what to do or say.

The message is to recognise Mental Health Awareness Week during the industry's Radio Audio Week. Go to www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week for more information.
