CWMT has produced a new resource to be used in FE colleges with students on construction related courses.
The materials highlight the importance of talking about problems as a way of dealing with mental distress and signposting students to support networks. They have been written in response to evidence that the figure for male suicide amongst construction workers is up to twice the national average.
Comprising a booklet and Powerpoint slides with video material, the resource aims to convey the message that it’s as vital to seek help for mental health problems as for physlcal issues.
The materials are can be downloaded free of charge here.
