Mental Health Awareness Workshop

Date_ 10 September 2018

Whitemountain partnered with CITB NI and Mates in Minds to host its first in a series of workshops to employees on Mental Health Awareness on site at Temple Quarry, Lisburn.

John Foster, Senior Associate Consultant from Mates in Minds conducted a presentation to raise awareness and understanding of mental health and mental ill–health and to also address the stigma of poor mental health in the construction industry.

In addition to our recent Mental Health Awareness workshop, Senior Managers of Whitemountain were recently presented with a talk on Mental Health given by Frank Liddy, Lead Mindfulness Practitioner from Inspire. This is part of an ongoing Whitemountain objective to promote positive mental wellbeing throughout the workforce.

Frank Liddy highlighted that the construction industry in Northern Ireland has a significantly higher number of deaths by suicide than any other group of employment.
