With the growing awareness about mental health, it's possible that you picked up on some warning signs.

Responding to the new Government funding announced today, Samaritans chief executive Ruth Sutherland said: "We welcome the Government's announcement of funding towards Samaritans' helpline, which will meet around 10 per cent of the total helpline costs for the next four years and help us to continue to provide our service free of charge".

The "A Star Is Born" actress partnered with Dr. Tedros Adhanom, director general of the World Health Organization, in a moving op-ed for The Guardian calling for an end to the stigmatization of mental health services. But together we can change that. The RCP says one in 11 consultant psychiatrist posts is unfilled, while nurse mental health vacancies are even worse at one in 14.

"We can no longer afford to be silenced by stigma or stymied by misguided ideas that portray these conditions as a matter of weakness or moral failing", they continued in the op-ed. We can prevent the tragedy of suicide taking too many lives.

Gaga and Ghebreyesus called on governments and industry to "put mental health at the top of their agendas".

She said: "I understand how tragic, devastating and long-lasting the effect of suicide can be on families and communities".

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
The duke and duchess were greeted by Health Secretary Matt Hancock

The Duchess of Cambridge demonstrated her arty streak yesterday when she was asked to contribute to a painting.

Health secretary Matt Hancock said: "We're already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention, the suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years".

The Duke and Duchess viewed a work stream on "Children, Young People and the Next Generation" where they listened to presentations on two case studies of active mental health programmes in Slovenia and the US.

At the summit, William and Kate visited a stand run by the non-profit organisation United for Global Mental Health, where they heard about the work of Dixon Chibanda, who started an initiative in Zimbabwe teaching elderly women the skills to offer therapy sessions on "friendship benches".

It helps to explain why mental health is estimated to cost the economy about £35bn a year.
