Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.

It’s time to end the stigma around mental health and encourage open and honest conversation within the construction industry

A third of construction workers suffer from elevated stress levels with 91% reporting that they have felt overwhelmed.

If you are struggling with your mental then help is always available.

We have a number of staff who are trained Mental Health First Aiders and Responders both within our offices and on site who offer informal and confidential help.

If you would like external help then there are number of resources available to you – we recommend using the Construction Industry Helpline set up by the Lighthouse Charity. They have a number of resources available including a 24/7 free confidential phoneline and text line as well as a free app and online wellbeing courses.
