“See Me” – Mental Health Resources

Mental health and wellbeing continues to be huge challenge in the construction sector.

While awareness levels are growing, it’s still a shocking fact that workers in construction are more four times more likely to die from suicide than from a fall from height.

It’s absolutely vital that we take steps in all work environments to ensure employees – at all levels of the business – can speak openly about mental health, without fear of stigma or damaging their career prospects.
