DSL embraces Mates in Mind
Mates in Mind aims to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing in the UK construction industry.
Right now, one in six workers in the UK is experiencing depression, anxiety or stress. Suicide is now the leading cause of death in men between 15 and 49. Three out of four suicides are men. Too many men are struggling alone.
Mates in Mind wants to support the Construction industry by providing them with relevant information and support. They are working with experts in this sector: organisations such as Mind, MHFA and Samaritans.
Help us raise awareness, join the community.
Mates in Mind has an ambitious goal – to reach 100,000 workers in its first year and by 2025 to have reached 75% of the construction industry.
It is led by and for the industry in partnership with the Health in Construction Leadership Group and British Safety Council, as well as with other leading organisations and charities such as Mind, Samaritans and Mental Health First Aid England.
Mates in Mind helps to make sense of available options and support to employers.
Mates in Mind is a registered charity.
