World Mental Health Day

 

The Dukes and Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex have combined to narrate a short film launching the Every Mind Matters to empower people to manage the early symptoms of poor mental health.

Watch the video “Every Mind Matters” here.

 

Some facts:

 

According to recent reports from MATES in Construction and PricewaterhouseCoopers, construction workers are more than twice as likely to suicide as other people in Australia, construction workers are 6 times more likely to die by suicide than through a workplace accident, Apprentices in construction are two and a half times more likely to suicide than other young men their age and 21% of workers in the construction industry were shown to have had a mental health condition. The construction industry alone employs more than 625,000 people across Australia, making it one of the biggest employers in the country and the statistics surrounding suicide in this industry are quite confronting. 

 

As a steel industry and key supplier to Australia’s construction sector The Australian Steel Association are embracing the fact that it is OK to talk about your mental well-being and to note and manage the early signs of stress.
