Prince William opens up about his own mental health struggles

Anna Jefferson | 13 September, 2018, 15:55

Speaking at an event to launch his Mental Health At Work initiative, he said: "You're just seeing all the sad things, all the pain everyday", as he chatted to senior paramedic Dawn Anderson, who has recovered from post traumatic stress disorder with help from her employer.

The survey of more than 44,000 employees also revealed that only half of those who had experienced poor mental health had talked to their employer about it, suggesting that as many as one in four United Kingdom workers is struggling in silence.

He added that even small changes to policy, approach and workplace culture can make a big difference to the mental health of others. Those staff who felt their manager supported their mental health or could spot the signs that someone might be struggling were far more likely to say they would be able to talk about their mental health at work. More often than not, it is the fear of losing the job, or shame that prevents them from talking about their mental health.

"Half the people at work are living with a mental health problem - either now or it's in the past".

A separate study released on September 11 by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) warned that the size of Britain's workplace mental health challenge is "considerable and growing".
