Mental Health Awareness

Great turn out to an early and cold morning at Canberra Depot on Thursday 25th July tackling the stigma around mental health and suicide in the construction industry.

Suicide is the leading cause of death among men aged between 15-44 and is 25% higher in the construction industry than any other industry, with young workers aged between 15 and 24 10 times more likely to commit suicide.

No one is immune to mental health issues, it affects both men and women in our industry which is why Lack Group has partnered with Mates in Construction.

Over the next few months, we will be rolling out Mates in Construction General Awareness Training though all our depots, giving our workers the tools to recognise workmates who may be struggling.

Everyone looking out for everyone.

Work Safe. Home Safe. LackSafe
