Prime Minister backs #MentalHealthMinute as country unites behind historic initiative


Theresa May has come out in support of the #MentalHealthMinute urging the country to tune in to the special message.

In a tweet from the Prime Minsiter’s official 10 Downing Street account Theresa May said, “At 10.59am today a minute-long message will be broadcast by hundreds of UK radio stations as part of a campaign to raise awareness for #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek. Do tune in. By challenging the stigma and speaking out, we really can make things better.”

The Minster for Digital and the Creative Industries, Margot James MP, also supported #MentalHealthMinute.

Margot James said: “Heard the #MentalHealthMinute moments ago in the car – so inspiring to hear the radio industry come together to encourage people to talk about mental health. People should never feel that they can’t talk about theirs. #ItsOkayToSay #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek”
