We are delighted to announce that Niblock are joining up with Mates in Mind in order to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing among our workforce and the wider construction industry. Mates in Mind is being delivered in support of the Health in Construction Leadership Group and in partnership with The British Safety Council and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA).
As a Supporter of Mates in Mind, we gain access to support and communication materials, as well as a range of awareness and training programmes – helping us to take a joined-up approach to improving mental health & wellbeing. We are focused on better understanding the needs of our employees, whilst ensuring immediately that all our staff have access to trained and qualified counsellors. We recognise that the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have had a vast impact on everyone, and now more than ever we need access to the correct support channels.
We will also be taking part in national events, starting today with National Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-14th May)!
