Covered in this course
The Mental Health in Construction Training course is broken down into 4 sections.
1) Mental Health in Construction
As you may know for yourself, work-related stress in the construction industry can be triggered by heavy workloads, long working hours, and always thinking about your physical safety while carrying out high-risk tasks. In this section, we look at the importance of training, common triggers for poor mental health and changing workplace culture.
2) Mental Health Problems
In this section, we’ll be raising awareness of common mental health problems, particularly anxiety and depression. But we’ll also be looking at how stress and loneliness can have a big influence on your mental health.
If you’re interested in learning more, this section also has extra information on a small number of the other common mental illnesses!
3) Wellbeing toolkit
This section is your Wellbeing Toolkit that can help you look after your mental health on a daily basis. We appreciate that everyone has their own ideas about how to approach their mental health and wellbeing, so this section has a variety of insights, mini exercises, recommendations and some food for thought so you can use what suits you.
4) External Help
If your wellbeing is becoming a top priority for you, and you feel like you need extra support, there’s plenty of avenues you can go down - or even suggest to your family, friends and colleagues if they need some guidance.
This section provides some useful external resources that you may wish to use to aid your wellbeing.

A good course that gets you thinking about mental health,things that you take for granted or thought you just have to put up with. Not so taxing that you get stressed about it.
Hi All having experienced the 5 boroughs in mental health awareness, I can say that this brief course was informative and constructive, the cross over from the two presenters giving analysis on all the topics worked extremely well and the dress code of both a (brown top) totally harmonised with the easy flow of presentation. So thank you & god bless... and I will keep releasing my serotonin..... 😊

I recommend that all levels of supervision and management carry out this very good course.
I used this as a refresher to my existing Mental Health First Aider position. Course provides an individual with basic knowledge of types of mental health. The 2-day MHFA course gives you the confidence to be of assistance when a person shows signs of a mental health issue.
This training course was very useful and full of nice resources. Many compliments for that and thank you
