    Increasingly employer's have become aware of a need to make provision for Mental Health & Wellbeing in the workplace.

    Construction Industry?

    We have arranged a training course specifically for the delegates from the construction industry. We are aware that 10% of construction workers either attempt or complete suicide (thats roughly 200) every year and we are on a mission to reduce this number as far as we can.

    We would like to hear from construction companies, big or small who would like to discuss the issues they have, so we have set up a 'free breakfast session later in the year' which all are welcome to attend. Look for the date and booking details below.
