Supporting construction students with mental health problems:
A resource for course tutors
The information and teaching suggestions in this resource are designed for use in further education colleges and are specifically designed for tutors on construction related courses to use with their students.
The resource and accompanying slides highlight the importance of talking about problems as a way of dealing with mental distress and of signposting students to existing and new networks of support. The materials have been written in response to evidence that male suicide amongst construction workers is up to twice the national average. The resource is intended as a starting point for discussion.
