“Mental health is an issue that has gained prominence in the construction sector in recent years. Major surveys show that over half of the industry workforce have experienced mental health problems at some point. These are alarming figures, but the reality is that this problem has always existed and only now are we realising the true scale. 

“In construction, people are our business and we have a duty of care to understand the impact of mental health issues, both at home and in the workplace.

"As an industry, we are ready to tackle this but it will take a wider societal approach to remove the stigma associated with poor mental health.”

Derek Shewan, Chief Operating Officer, Robertson Group
