Statement:

"Changing perceptions around mental health in the construction industry is of paramount importance for several compelling reasons. Firstly, the construction sector has a disproportionately high rate of mental health issues, including stress, anxiety, and depression, often attributed to the demanding nature of the work. By reshaping how mental health is perceived in this field, we can create a more supportive and compassionate environment for workers, encouraging them to seek help when needed. Secondly, altered perceptions can help reduce the stigma associated with mental health struggles, making it easier for employees to discuss their challenges openly and access the resources and support they require. This, in turn, can enhance overall productivity, safety, and job satisfaction, benefiting both the individual and the industry as a whole. Ultimately, changing mental health perceptions in construction is not just about fostering well-being but also about ensuring a stronger and more resilient workforce for the future."
