Actual Radio Teams Up with 100’s of other radio stations for #MentalHealthMinute

On the 15th May 2018 radio stations across the UK teamed up to broadcast a minute long Mental Health Awareness radio moment.


Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry along with stars from music, sport, stage and screen joined together for a minute long message which was broadcast simultaneously by hundreds of UK radio stations at 10.59am today.


In an historic first and reaching one of radio’s biggest ever collective audiences, the minute of simultaneous programming will unite stations all over the UK from national networks such as those run by Global, Bauer or Wireless, to smaller local stations and community stations, together with BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and Five Live.

Spearheaded by Radiocentre and Radio Academy and executed by content agency Somethin’ Else, the Mental Health Awareness minute, which falls in Mental Health Awareness Week, is supported by the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together which was launched to change the national conversation on mental health and tackle the stigma that prevents people from getting the help they need.
