Reaching construction professionals and providing mental health guidance is something that UK Construction Week (UKCW) is keen to do. That is why we have partnered with associations and organisations and developed the all new Wellbeing Information Zone at this year’s show.
Sadly, there is an elevated risk of mental illnesses in Construction. Two people a day attempt to take their own life - making it a bigger killer than falls from height, accidents or anything else.
Our Wellbeing information zone will include workshops on mental and physical health, workshops on tailoring an approach to mental wellbeing in your business, personal stories from construction professionals who have dealt with mental health problems and can share their tips on how to spot people in trouble, how to assist, and where to get support.
