The Duke of Cambridge said the initiative's mission was to create a "big shift in working culture" and ensure that dealing with mental health is a part of everyday working life. It's really tough work as an air ambulance and search and rescue pilot.

During the event, the duke will also meet representatives from a number of organisations who have shown leadership in promoting good mental health in their own workplaces.

Prince William has confessed he "took a lot home without realising" when he worked as an air ambulance pilot.

The Duke of Cambridge, 36, shared the revelation while speaking at the launch of Mental Health at Work, a UK-based initiative that helps support mental health causes in the workplace.

The project Wwebsite, as part of the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign and the mental health charity Mind, will provide resources, training and information for managers who struggle to find the help.

During his visit to Bristol, William met people already benefiting from the online gateway.
