Right now, one in six workers in the UK is experiencing depression, anxiety or stress, in the construction industry it suggests 350,000 people are suffering at any one time. Life in construction offers jobs and careers full of energy with a unique mix of diversity, skills sets, opportunity and life experience. It offers workers across the UK a chance to change the face of the world we live in, both for themselves and for others. Because of this every single person in Construction deserves the chance of positive mental health.
NFRC is supporting the campaign and it is their intention to train members of staff to become mental health champions.
