11 September 2015 Last updated at 13:26 BST

Rapper Stephen Manderson, better known as Professor Green, has said mental health awareness should be taught in schools to try to tackle the taboo subject.

The 31 year old is best known for his success in the charts, but is fast becoming recognised for his work raising awareness of mental health and suicide.

He has battled anxiety and depression from an early age and talked openly about losing his dad, who killed himself in 2008.

Professor Green told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme about his troubled relationship with his father.
