But when we get overwhelmed by stress it can become hard to manage and even affect our mental health.

Researchers who carried out a detailed study found in excess of nine million workers would "dread" discussing their mental wellbeing with their superior. Other segments of the programme include regular, confidential discussions with a specialist Wellbeing Recovery Coach, and club wide initiatives to make emotional wellbeing discussions part of the culture.

The survey is open now and will close on Friday 27 July, and the more people that complete the survey questionnaire during this time will help us to get the best picture of mental health at work in the UK.

The report also found that the level of employee absence from mental health issues is on, average, 6.6 days annually, per employee.

Mental Health Awareness Week is a national campaign run by the Mental Health Foundation, which this year runs from May 14 to May 20. The government's "Thriving at Work report" into mental health estimated the cost of poor mental health to United Kingdom business stands at between £33 billion and £42 billion a year. The fact that just 38 per cent feel that their workplace encourages an open culture around mental health is concerning, particularly given the research by Stevenson and Farmer which showed that poor mental health at work could be costing the United Kingdom economy as much as £99 billion per year. Support those who are affected by the wake of the stigma.

And more than a fifth came away from the discussion feeling no better off.

Legislature interviews Underwood, others as potential successor to attorney general

Absenteeism is a growing issue for businesses: approximately 743,000 employees in the United Kingdom have taken long-term absence in the last 12 months due to mental health issues.

Company-organised sport and active pursuits not only provide opportunities to become more physically active, but they also have a social element which can be beneficial to mental health - with talking to others and getting out in the fresh air creating notable benefits.

Amid this, 68 per cent think employers should do more to improve the understanding of mental health in the workplace. Small things can make a difference.

The survey is part of their campaign: 'Where's Your Head At?' which surveyed readers and listeners from their brands including, heat, Grazia, KISS, Empire, Magic and Absolute Radio in collaboration with mental health campaigner Natasha Devon MBE and the Mental Health First Aid (MFHA) England.

Mr Benjamin was moments away from jumping off London's Waterloo Bridge until Mr Laybourn -someone he had never met before - stepped in and saved his life.

Where you live can have a huge impact on your mental health - everyone needs safe, stable and suitable housing to stay well.
