Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week is coordinated annually by the Mental Health Foundation.

The week helps to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues, with the 2019 theme being about “Body Image“.

The idea is to help prompt a national conversation about what we can do as communities, schools, families and individuals to move from survive to thrive.

To support Mental Health Awareness Week on your site, you could do the following:

  • Hold toolbox talks making your workforce aware of mental health related issues and the support available;
  • Provide a confidential support network and open-door policy, to encourage workers to speak up if they have any issues;
  • Support the Construction Industry Helpline and display posters in canteens and rest areas;
  • Provide professional support via doctor or nurse visits;
  • Read the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Spotlight on… mental health campaign, which includes case studies of how sites have raised awareness of mental health amongst the workforce, as well as details of mental health campaigns and charities.

Mental Health Awareness Week will run from 13-19 May 2019, to find out more about this event click below.
