Mates in Mind aims to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing in the UK construction industry.
Its aim is to reach 100,000 workers in its first year and by 2025 to have reached 75% of the sector.
In partnering with Mates in Mind, Inspire are helping construction companies and workers across Northern Ireland to access the charity's full range of services, through the delivery of training and awareness programmes and counselling support services.
Mental health in construction is a significant issue, with over a third of construction workers having experienced a condition in the past year, as well as reported rates of suicide that are significantly higher than any other industry.
With that in mind, working in partnership with CITB NI, Inspire are supporting Mates in Mind in the Laying the Foundations for Mental Health Programme - a new education initiative that aims to help construction workers better recognise the symptoms of mental health problems, as well as helping them protect and promote their own mental health.
