Mind Matters survey: Results in full

A total of 1,139 people from across the construction industry took the Mind Matters survey. Here are the startling results.

55 per cent of respondents have experienced mental health issues, rising to 64 per cent among junior and graduate employees

42 per cent had experienced issues at their current place of work – more than double the national average

Nearly a third of those surveyed had taken time off due to stress / mental health issues 

Of these, three-fifths did not tell their manager that the reason was mental health

Among those that had suffered mental health issues, only 41 per cent received appropriate support from employers

Barely a quarter of respondents knew their rights

72 per cent knew colleagues who had experienced mental health issues

One in four have considered taking their own life

15 per cent have lost a colleague to suicide

Among those that answered yes to either of those two questions, 90 per cent did not turn to their employer for help
