Eighty-six per cent of people agree mental health is one of the biggest challenges facing the country. Here at Closer we want to encourage you to take time to talk about your emotions openly.

We've launched a campaign calledWhere's Your Head At? which will improve the mental health of the nation by ensuring employers look after the well being of their workforce.

We all have mental health – In just the same way as we each have a physical fitness. Evidence also shows that the earlier a mental health issue - like stress, anxiety or depression - is detected the easier it is to manage and treat.

We want to make it easy for you to talk about your mental health at work and ensure that there are trained colleagues on site who know how to point you in the direction of any help you might need.

We're joining forces with Mental Health First Aid to raise at least 100,000 signatures on a petition to make mental health first aiders a requirement in the workplace or college taken to parliament to be debated.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to wheresyourheadat.org to sign the petition.

It’s easy to view a relationship through rose-tinted glasses when you can see how happy your ex is with someone else but try to remember the reasons why you’re not together. If you were right for each other, things would have worked out.

Don’t look back. Instead of feeling frustrated at wasting time in the relationship, feel thrilled you haven’t lost any more.

Let go of negative energy – throw out things that remind you of your ex and get your friends round for a celebration of you.

Don’t badmouth your ex – it will just make you seem toxic and could alienate any mutual friends.

Remember that at some point you thought your ex was the best thing since sliced bread. Being reasonable about who he is, rather than turning him into the devil incarnate, is a well-adjusted way of dealing with any resentment

Going forward, don’t let your past relationship define you. Take risks to become the person you really want to be. Those with the courage to try something new, regardless of whether they succeed, tend to be healthier and happier.
