Starting the conversation in construction


Video

Sometimes a quick video is a great way to get people talking about mental health. They lend themselves well to sharing on an intranet or by email, putting up on a screen in the break room, or using as part of a longer session.

Building Mental Health has collected together four videos, each between two and four minutes long, focusing on different subjects related to mental health in construction and engineering:

  • A film introducing the Construction Industry Helpline app​Construction Industry Helpline app Software 2 0 Sometimes the easiest way to get help is on your phone screen, especially if you're onsite.
