​Personal Health Advice: ​Mental health


In a time of uncertainty and a lot of unknown about the immediate future, it is natural that it will affect our physical and mental health and wellbeing.  The ever changing coronavirus situation has created a number of challenges for even the most resilient of us, whether that be dealing with the practicalities of juggling work and childcare or the emotional distress of dealing with loneliness whilst isolating. 

You might find visiting NHS/Every-Mind-Matters a useful tool in helping you through the coronavirus isolation period. It provides helpful information covering a range of topics that cover your physical and mental wellbeing.  Although some may seem obvious, in such exceptional circumstances, even the simplest of things such as eating well and getting a good night sleep may not be at the forefront of our minds.

Mental Health support can also be found on the Lighthouse Club—The Construction Industry Charity and the Building Mental Health websites. Both websites are specifically for construction workers and detail the Construction Industry Helpline number and a newly created App to support construction workers' mental health.

Please contact our dedicated helpline 0330 123 4714* or email if you have any question not covered by these FAQs (for personal health issues please refer to the NHS). We are regularly monitoring updates from the NHS, Government and our industry partners to ensure we keep our information current and relevant.

The hotline is available to NFRC members only. An 0330 number is the cost of a local call, wherever you are calling from within the UK. In most cases it is also within your 'inclusive minutes' for your mobile phone contract; so most callers will not be charged for calling the helpline from a mobile phone.
