Thomas Sinden signs mental health charter to support and raise awareness in the construction industry

Promoting positive mental health and raising awareness in the construction industry has never been more important. With two construction workers taking their own lives each working day, Thomas Sinden has signed the Building Mental Health Charter to demonstrate its commitment to raising awareness of the mental health issues within the industry.

Des Thomas, Director of Thomas Sinden comments, “We are proud to be supporting this important charter and working with organisations such as Mates in Mind to raise awareness and provide our team with the support and tools should they need them.”

Building Mental Health aims to encourage the industry to engage and embrace the mental health agenda, make best practice and information readily and wherever possible freely available and ensure that the industry takes a huge leap forward to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health by getting the conversation started while educating as many as possible where and when to seek help.
