The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity are announcing some fantastic initiatives to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week and reminding everyone in construction about all of the freely available resources they offer.
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is 100% dedicated to providing emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to the construction community and their families. The charity provides a 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline which provides a range of free and confidential wellbeing support services and this is complemented by their free Construction Industry Helpline App and text HARDHAT service.
The charity is launching three fantastic new masterclasses to complement the huge variety of free wellbeing masterclasses already available to anyone in construction and these can be booked now.
As well as announcing their new masterclasses, the charity has also launched their Road to Wellbeing package as part of their Company Supporters programme. As from 1st May all Company Supporters will be able to access as many scheduled online mental health courses as they wish, completely free of charge. This even includes MHFA England approved Mental Health First Aider Courses.
Company Supporters will now also have access to additional support including, a dedicated resources hub, wellbeing champion training and critical incident response.
Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity said, “There’s always a huge focus of activity around Mental Health Awareness Week which is fantastic, but with two construction workers taking their own life every single working day, we need to do more. We understand that for many companies, creating and delivering initiatives to improve workforce wellbeing can be difficult, time consuming and costly, so we want to make things as simple as possible. Our Road to Wellbeing package underpins our commitment to ensure that everyone has easy access to a variety of pro-active resources to support every level of an organisation, from site operatives through to senior management.”
Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week the charity will also be posting industry relevant statistics on mental health across their social media channels and their website to signpost to their core charitable services.
