Ardmore acts to promote mental health awareness in construction by raising awareness of the issues and resources available to address the growing problem of mental health and workplace stress in the construction industry.

Ardmore have done this by developing a poster signposting the workforce to different support groups and promoting our own in-house support group.

Mental health is an issue which can have a considerable impact on the industry, with pressures such as stress and demands to meet project deadlines and the risks involved in completing jobs quickly increasing the likelihood of mental issues.

  • 1 in 4 persons will experience a mental health problem in any year – poor mental health affects anyone.
  • 9 out of 10 persons who experience mental health problems say they face stigma and discrimination as a result.
  • 8 in 10 employers have no mental health policy.
  • Stress has forced 1 in 5 workers to call in sick and 90% did not feel able to tell their boss the real reason why.

Covering issues such as anxiety, finances and discrimination, Ardmore’s campaign helps staff and sub-contractors access resources to help understand their own mental wellbeing and the support available to them.
