TUESDAY - 15TH MAY 2018 - 10.59AM

Commercial radio stations around the UK and BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and 5 Live are uniting to broadcast a one-minute message about mental health.

A one minute message will air simultaneously on May 15 at 10.59am and will feature globally famous voices talking about the stigma of mental health.

The message is to recognise Mental Health Awareness Week during the industry’s Radio Audio Week. The minute is supported by the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign which launched in 2016 to change the national conversation on mental health and tackle the stigma that prevents people from getting the help they need.

With over 300 stations taking part, broadcasting to one of radio’s biggest collective audiences with an average listenership of 20 million, the Mental Health Minute has been led by Radiocentre and The Radio Academy.
