Latest research into the Construction industry’s mental health issues have highlighted more work needs to be done to help with the stigma surrounding mental health.

With this in mind all staff including Directors are in the process of attending a Mental Health Awareness workshop.

Each group of around 12 people from a mix of site personnel and office based staff aim to tackle the understanding of mental health and emotional wellbeing, how to stay mentally healthy , identify mental health issues and to generally encourage everyone to feel comfortable in discussing mental health and wellbeing.

The course also included group activities and an opportunity for each attendee to discuss any issues they have experienced.

The first workshop was well received and everyone who participated felt they had benefited from attending and it certainly gave them pause for thought in their dealings with both their own and others wellbeing.
