Mates in Mind is a registered charity that aims to raise awareness in the construction industry regarding matters involving mental health. Because of personal experiences demonstrating sharply the importance of mental health at home and in the work we have decided to support Mates in Mind.
Money raised supports the organisation in breaking taboos associated with mental health issues and also to addressing the stigma surrounding the adverse culture against all mental health illnesses.
Many organisations associated with mental health issues have already joined this initiative to improve safety, depression rates, risks, and the wellbeing of its workers. The Samaritans, Mind, and The British Safety Council, among many others, have realised that a huge workforce has its share of health problems and have devoted time and money to improving the construction industry for its many employees with mental health issues that could adversely effect their working conditions. We hope the impact of this initiative will have a lasting effect on mental health and wellbeing in the construction industry.
