The Lighthouse Construction Charity has joined the ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ campaign to help change the law on mental health in the workplace.
Backed by 75,000 and growing every day, the campaign is supported by many celebrities, mental health charities and politicians who are calling for this change to ensure workplaces and colleges provide mental health support to their employees and students.
Bill Hill, Chief Executive of the Lighthouse Club Charity said, “With 2 construction workers taking their own life every day, we really need to raise the awareness and increase access to getting health and wellbeing support in our industry. Legislating to have a Mental Health First Aider on site will make a significant difference and complement the work we are doing with the CITB, Building Mental Health and Mates in Mind”
The message echoes our own Building Mental Health campaign, calling for change in our industry to improve mental health awareness and support across our workforce.
