Most referrals (56%) in England came from primary schools.

The CIPD/Simplyhealth Health and Wellbeing at Work report also revealed that mental ill-health was now the main cause of long-term absence in more than a fifth of United Kingdom organisations (22 per cent) and that stress-related absence had increased over the past year in more than a third (37 per cent) of businesses.

In nearly a third of referrals for which data is available, children were denied specialist treatment from Child and Adolescent Mental health Services (CAMHS).

Fifty-six per cent of 2,002 van drivers and owners who were asked to give their views and experiences of mental health issues in the workplace said discussion was stigmatised, with the top reason cited being because it is a "male-dominated industry".

Training would contribute to rail companies' broader mental health strategies for effective rehabilitation, which the RSSB says could reduce lost working time by up to 30%.

The NSPCC's Childline service has reported a 26% increase in the number of counselling sessions with children about mental health issues over the past four years, with some saying they only receive specialist support when they reach crisis point. It found that 123,713 referrals have been made since 2014-15.

"If everybody from upper management to bottom management engages in a practice where they're openly talking about their mental health problems, then it sends a message to the entire community [that] it's OK to talk about these issues", Theresa Nguyen, vice president of policy and programs at Mental Health America, advises.

"So children are getting less support and the number of learning assistants that provided the pastoral support are being reduced due to school cuts".

The study was commissioned by YouGov for Mental Health Awareness week which has been run by the Mental Health Foundation for the past 18 years.

Sarah Hannafin, senior policy adviser on mental health and wellbeing for the school leaders' union NAHT, said headteachers were concerned Camhs is setting treatment thresholds too high.

The NSPCC says the statistics have highlighted the urgent need for a broader range of support services for mental health needs and is now calling on central government to invest more funding into early support services for children.

"We must make sure that Childline is adequately funded so it isn't left vulnerable and can be there for the children who have nowhere else to turn". "This will improve links between up to 1,200 schools and their local specialist mental health service".

"Individually we need to understand what is causing us personal stress and learn how to respond most effectively".
