Mental Health in Construction
Mental Health Problems
You may be wondering why we've created a Mental Health course specifically for the construction industry. In short, poor mental health in the construction industry accounts for over 200 suicides per year which is absolutely devastating.
The sad and often unspoken truth is that construction workers are prone to stress, anxiety, and depression for a number of different reasons. These factors are responsible for over 400,000 lost working days each year in the UK.
As a predominantly male industry, there is a 'macho culture' associated with construction workplaces. This can often trivialise the concept of mental health throughout the industry.
Our Mental Health in Construction course is split into 4 easy-to-follow sections, designed to educate learners on the various types of mental health problems. The course explains the science behind our thinking and where to go to for external help, in order to break the stigma surrounding mental ill-health throughout.

Why is Mental Health Awareness in Construction Important?
Poor mental health in the construction industry accounts for over 400,000 lost working days and, sadly, over 200 suicides every year.
It’s an unspoken fact that, due to a combination of a predominantly male labour force, strenuous work, and a “macho culture”, it creates an atmosphere hostile to the sharing of one’s feelings.
Our Mental Health Awareness in Construction course is specifically designed to shine a light on this problem, break the stigma, and help construction workers speak up about their mental health. As a result, it reduces the number of lost working days and, hopefully, saves lives.
