Mental illness is highly prevalent in the construction industry, with around 25% of people experiencing some sort of mental illness in the past 12 months. Because of this damning evidence, it is important that we support our co-workers to make our workplace as safe as possible. By asking your co-workers R U OK? we can reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and make the path to recovery more simple.
Probuild will be distributing RUOK day material on mental health to all employees. In addition to getting involved in the day and creating awareness around mental health, Probuild is committed to supporting its staff by providing free and confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselling, all year round.
