Construction workers have been identified as a particularly “at risk” sector of the population when it comes to mental health problems.

Suicide is also a major problem among construction workers, which is why we need to consider ways that we can improve construction workers’ mental health.

Employers need to be proactive about protecting workers health and safety, which includes their mental health.

Mates in Construction (1300 642 111) (construction workers specifically)

Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636
