Improving mental health awareness

Improving mental health awareness within the construction industry

Our employment retention service team in Walsall has supported national civil engineering and infrastructure specialist company Barhale to offer advice and guidance for employees to improve and promote mental health awareness within the construction industry.

We worked alongside Walsall College to deliver a programme around ‘Engineering Better Mental Health Management’ at Barhale’s Walsall headquarters which helped them pick up the Mates in Mind Impact Award at the British Safety Council’s 60th International Safety Awards in May 2018.

Two hundred members of staff at Barhale’s regional operational centres will actively take part in the programme this year and it has already been delivered to over one hundred colleagues!
