One in four of us experience mental illness at any given time.
The construction industry is particularly affected by mental health issues, one person in our sector commits suicide every other day on average. It is for this reason why we decided to make Rethink our corporate charity for 2016-2017.
“By working with Rethink we hope to raise the issue of mental illness on the agenda for our industry and hope to help alleviate some of the ignorance and stigma around a problem that is so prolific in the construction industry.” – Steve Elliott, CEO, BW.
Over the last year our workplace experts have raised over £6,000 for the charity. The fundraising efforts have ranged from Tough Mudder sporting events, bake sales, site activities and sub-contractor donations.
We would like to thank everyone who has raised money, sponsored and supported our experts over the last year and we look forward to continuing our support this year.
