Unfortunately, mental health problems are under-identified by health-care professionals and older people themselves, and the stigma surrounding these conditions makes people reluctant to seek help.

The survey results, published ahead of World Mental Health Day on 10 October, also revealed that nearly half (44%) of HR professionals thought poor mental health, anxiety or stress accounted for between 20% and 40% of the total number of sick days taken in their organisation.

Adequate health facilities at district level as well as proper awareness are indispensable to cater the needs of the patients suffering from mental disorders across the country, which are increasing in number with each passing day due to the social issues and negativity projected through different mode of communications.

Nearly a quarter (24%) of Scots don't feel comfortable talking about mental health at work, a survey has revealed.

They are often directly linked; physical illness can increase a person's risk of developing mental illness and, similarly, mental illness can negatively impact on physical health, stated Dr Majid al-Abdulla, Chair of the Mental Health Service at HMC.

Sadag's Cassey Chambers said more resources are needed to respond to the crisis: "Mental health education should start early in school, we need to get our young people talking about it".

It is important for employees to feel safe about opening up on their struggles with mental health without the fear of judgement or exclusion.

There is also a free NHS-approved online tool on the website, which helps people build an action plan to deal with stress and anxiety, boost their mood, improve their sleep and help them feel more in control.

"The worst case is that someone struggling with their mental health could consider suicide".

Diana O'Brien, global CMO of Deloitte, and Jen Fisher, Deloitte's National Managing Director for Wellness in U.S., suggest five ways for Bosses to reduce the stigma of mental health at work.

Dr Samya Ahmad al-Abdulla, Deputy National Lead for Mental Health and Wellbeing and Executive Director of Operations, PHCC, explained that mental health is about 'the way we think, feel, and behave and our ability to manage everyday situations. However, the same percentage (27 per cent) of respondents said they disclosed a mental-health diagnosis at work.

On October 10, help stamp out the stigma of mental health by wearing your Odd Socks and start the conversation about mental health.

"We've seen it firsthand with our own global workforce - employees want leaders to lead, to set the dialogue in motion around mental health and normalize the conversation", said Gorevic.
