Following the great success Ballymore had with our charity abseil fundraiser for local mental health charity MIND, we decided to implement further measures to continue raising awareness for mental health issues on site.
After discussions and a couple of workshops with representatives from MIND, three mental health first aiders were appointed.
These mental health first aiders were put in place to offer the workforce someone to talk to if they ever had any issues related to their mental health.
Under a strictly confidential policy site operatives have been given a comfortable environment to discuss issues and gain further help if they feel it is needed.
Two male and one female mental health first aiders are available so that both men and women on site are equally catered for.
As well as discussing mental health concerns, site operatives are encouraged to discuss any other pressing issues they feel need to be looked into.
Posters are displayed in the welfare facilities on site, giving information regarding the aid and how to get in contact/where to find the mental health first aiders.
