Poor mental health in the construction industry accounts for over 200 suicides per year and this is simply not good enough. The sad and often unspoken truth of it is that construction workers are prone to stress, anxiety and depression for a number of different reasons and these factors are responsible for over 400,000 lost working days each year in the UK.
This course aims to educate learners on the various types of mental health problems, the science behind our thinking and where to go to for external help. The course also puts a strong emphasis on breaking the stigma surrounding mental ill-health throughout.
