World Mental Health Day 2019

The construction industry has one of the highest levels of suicide across the workforce in the UK and Ireland. Northern Ireland in particular has a high level of suicide in terms of UK numbers.

The site has already completed a full site stand down to carry out a presentation on Building Mental Health, we found staff engaging in the talk by asking questions and providing feedback rather than simply appearing because we had asked.

Following on from this, and ahead of World Mental Health Day 2019, we have put up posters and information in canteens and welfare areas dealing with suicide prevention and mental health in the hope that this information may be taken on board either by someone who may need it, or by someone who might be able to help a friend or family member.
