    Hello there,

    Over the past four years I have been working on my PhD which explored mental health within the construction industry. 587 men from the construction industry took part within the study.
    On Tuesday 27th April at 12:00pm I will be presenting the findings of my research at BRANZ. The presentation will be available via ZOOM. If you are interested in viewing the presentation, please send me a message and I can send through the link. Your more than welcome to share with your team.
    Some of the key findings include:
    • Impact of masculine gender roles on men’s help-seeking behaviour
    • Impact of long work hours and work pressure on mental health
    • How site managers can encourage help-seeking on worksites
    • Perceptions of stress within the work environment
    • Worker's perceptions of seeking help from counsellor/ psychologist
    • Barriers towards accessing mental health support within the construction industry

    Please feel free to email me if you have any questions,

    Kind regards,

    Andy

    Hi Andy
    Thanks for that invite, there won't be anyone reading this who hasn't been touched by a self inflected death. Will your presentation be available to view online for anyone who can't zoom in on the 27th?

    Cheers
    Steve

    good stuff Andy. The more we know about this silent beast the better prepared we can be in looking for the signs and how to manage. Great that you have taken the time and effort to support construction. Looking forward to learning more
