Mates in Mind – Men’s Health Week – June 13-19 2022

Men in the UK are three times more likely to die by suicide than women.  However in construction – a male dominated industry– men are three times more likely to die by suicide than the national average for men. 

Construction work has a variety of pressures from tight contracts to long hours, time away from loved-ones and managing budgets, not to mention the added stresses of the pandemic and now the rising costs of supplies.  Additionally, within construction lies a “macho” culture which prevents many workers from seeking support and help when they may need it, putting further stress on their own mental health and wellbeing. 

As an organisation, we are pleased to support Mates in Mind to help raise mental health awareness and encourage all workers in the construction industry to talk and share their feelings.

Below also a link to a useful article that is well worth a read.
