Millennials feel more stressed on the job than older colleagues

Millennials feel more stressed on the job than older colleagues

"Stress is caused by so many things in our lives, things like debt, housing problems - sometimes it's about our own pressure we put on ourselves, whether it's pressure to do well in our education, or pressure to look good, or pressure at work, so there's lots of factors that give us stress in our lives".

Isle of Wight Radio is joining BBC and commercial radio stations around the UK to unite for the first time to broadcast a one-minute message about mental health.

The broadcast is created to encourage more people to talk openly about their mental health and was spearheaded by Radiocentre and Radio Academy with support from Harry and William's Royal Foundation as part of their Heads Together campaign.

"As well as providing company and fun, radio can be an important lifeline for listeners", said Radiocentre CEO Siobhan Kenny.

And it's something we all need to think about a lot more than we now do.

Every year, one in four people in the United Kingdom will experience a mental health problem, according to mental health charity Mind.

Thousands took part in the 2016 and 2017 surveys and we need your help to make 2018 the biggest yet.

When we're being creative, our brains release dopamine, a natural anti-depressant. This is why our new Mental Health Strategy, published a year ago, was shaped by a public consultation - a consultation which received almost 600 responses.

A strong workforce is at the centre of our plans so we are investing to provide 800 additional mental health workers in key locations such as A&E departments, GP practices, police stations and prisons.

It's crucial that the right measures are in place to care for everyone's mental health at work, and employers are proactive rather than reactive in their approach to supporting employee wellbeing as a whole.

May might be mental health awareness month, but the pursuit of inner peace and balance should be an important issue all year round. "This poignant moment of reflection, a first in United Kingdom radio, is a wonderful opportunity to help us improve how we support each othe remotionally". While among the 20.2 million adults in the US who have experienced a substance use disorder, about 50.5%-10.2 million adults-had a co-occurring mental illness.

Most importantly, when things get too much, everyone should know that there is always someone to talk to - and always people who love them.

In a mentally healthy organisation everyone should feel comfortable talking about stress.
