The project is curated is curated by Mind, the mental health charity, and funded by The Royal Foundation as part of their Heads Together campaign.

The website, an online gateway to resources, training, and information, allows companies and managers to better understand and support staff that may be struggling at work and remove the stigma when it comes to mental health issues including stress, depression, anxiety as well as manic depression and schizophrenia.

"I took a lot home without realising it".

Regardless of what profession you're in, you spend more time in work and with your colleagues than anything else you do in life.

"Half the people at work are living with a mental health problem - either now or it's in the past. The attrition builds up and you never really have the opportunity to offload anything if you're not careful".

The new website comes as a survey finds that 48 percent of United Kingdom employees have experienced mental health problems in their current job.

On Tuesday, the Duke of Cambridge spoke at an event in Bristol for the launch of a website to improve mental health in the workplace after he was "stunned" to hear that only 2 percent of employees in Britain feel able to talk to their HR departments about their mental state.

William added: "My ambition is that this gateway can be the start of a big shift in working culture".

A survey conducted by Mind into wellbeing in the workplace revealed that nearly half of the 44,000 people questioned had experienced poor mental health in their current roles.

He said that while working as an air ambulance pilot crews were encouraged to talk about problems. He has a real relaxed presence about him.

The senior paramedic, who developed PTSD following some of her experiences at work, added: "I've always held the belief that everybody is susceptible to mental health problems and I wouldn't expect even a member of the royal family to be exempt from that".
