We support the ‘Help Inside the Hard Hat’ campaign to raise awareness of poor mental health within our industry.
Our industry can be physically and mentally demanding. In the UK, two construction workers take their own lives every working day and stress, anxiety, and depression account for a fifth of all work-related illnesses.
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is working night and day to ensure no worker or family feels alone in a crisis. The charity provides a range of free and widely available pro-active resources to support the industry, part of which are the free and confidential 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline /UK 0345 605 1956 or ROI 1800 939 122/ and the Construction Industry Helpline App.
Please help us spread the word that there is Help and support available, and help us tackle the stigma surrounding mental health in the Construction industry.
