Conversation on Mental Wellbeing in the Construction Industry: Insights from Andrew Pain and Andy Bishop
Share

Mental health expert Andrew Pain and Lighthouse representative Andy Bishop recently joined Re-flow for an on-camera discussion about the mental wellbeing challenges faced by those in the construction industry and the support available to them.

The discussion highlights the critical need to address mental health issues within construction. Andrew Pain delves into the various factors impacting mental health, such as physical health and social conditions, and how these elements uniquely affect industry professionals.

Andy Bishop introduces the ‘Make It Visible’ campaign, aimed at encouraging men to speak more openly about their mental health struggles. By sharing his personal experiences, Andy underscores the pressing issue of high suicide rates within the predominantly male workforce in construction.

Both Andrew and Andy advocate for the implementation of mental health first aiders who can offer immediate support and guide individuals to professional help. Their conversation emphasises the importance of breaking the stigma surrounding mental health, fostering open dialogue, and ensuring accessible support for all in the construction industry.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with mental health issues, there are plenty of ways to reach out and talk to someone.
