CN has launched a mental health survey for the second year running to investigate the scale of the industry’s mental health issues.
As part of CN’s ongoing and award-winning mental health campaign, Mind Matters, we have launched an anonymous survey to examine whether the mental health of the industry’s workforce has improved over the past 12 months.
Last year’s mental health survey revealed that one in four construction workers have considered suicide. This rose to one in three among junior members of staff and graduates.
More than half (55 per cent) had experienced mental health issues and 42 per cent had suffered these issues at their current place of work.
This year, CN is investigating whether these shocking figures have been tackled across the industry.
To do this, we want to hear from you.
Has working in construction had a negative impact on your mental health? Is there still a stigma around the issue?
Mind Matters has been shortlisted for the British Society of Magazine Editors’ 2018 Best Campaign award. Jack Simpson is also nominated for ‘Best Scoop’ for revealing HS2 conflict of interest concerns.
