Poor line management training and support could be causing poorer mental health amongst rail staff, according to the Rail Safety and Stands Board (RSSB), as Mental Health Awareness Week kicks off.

Fifty-six per cent of 2,002 van drivers and owners who were asked to give their views and experiences of mental health issues in the workplace said discussion was stigmatised, with the top reason cited being because it is a "male-dominated industry".

Many of us spend most of our waking hours at work, so it's vital that our workplaces have a safe and supportive culture that treats people as individuals.

The number of referrals from schools seeking mental health treatment for troubled pupils has shot up in Lincolnshire over the past few years.

Reps. Katko and Napolitano on May 9 introduced House Resolution (H.Res.) 883 to designate May 2018 as Mental Health Month and to help raise awareness about mental illness, which affects an estimated 44.7 million adults in the United States, according to the resolution.

"Our young people are under far too much pressure and have a very narrow curriculum which has had much of the joy taken out of learning".

And mental health conditions such as work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 15.8 million sick days previous year, according to Office for National Statistics (ONS) data. Less than a third, however, agree that senior leaders encourage a focus on mental well-being through their actions and behaviours.

But he struggled at the end of the 225K (140-mile) route from Pesco Sannita up to Gran Sasso d'Italia and finished well down. I had the power, I knew what I was capable of, but it's one thing having the belief and another thing doing it.

Training would contribute to rail companies' broader mental health strategies for effective rehabilitation, which the RSSB says could reduce lost working time by up to 30%.

It's clear we have some way to go before the majority of workplaces achieve parity of esteem in the attention that good mental health receives compared with physical health, and the confidence and openness with which this aspect of health is treated.

Much of the stress in the report circled back to the workplace, as they reported that half a million people were suffering as a result of it. Unsurprisingly, London has previously been cited the most stressed city in the United Kingdom with rigorous overtime and horrific commutes while on the other hand Doncaster was as stress-free as a British city comes.

Why do millennials feel so stressed out?

"By supporting Mental Health Awareness Week we aim to raise awareness of and de-stigmatise mental health issues to make it easier for those working in our industry to come forwards for support, or indeed to support others to get help".

"Robust policies and wellness initiatives must be in place to ensure employees feel well-supported and comfortable enough to discuss health issues - be it mental or otherwise - without feeling like they are being targeted or mocked".

If we want to break the silence around mental health struggles, it would begin with managers communicating that it is okay to talk about it. "Our research finds that organisations with managers who are able to effectively promote good mental health are less likely to have seen an increase in reported common mental health conditions, which shows how crucial that capability is", she said.
