New App to Support Construction Workers' Mental Health

The statistics are grim, with two construction workers taking their own life every single day, and stress, anxiety and depression currently account for a fifth of all work-related illness.

A new collaboration between the Lighthouse Club – the Construction Industry Charity – construction software firm ‘COINS’ and ‘Building Mental Health’, aims to address this sensitive subject with a new ‘Construction Industry Helpline’ app. This free mental health app will provide vital information, advice and guidance on many wellbeing topics including stress, anxiety, depression, anger and suicidal thoughts.

Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Club charity, said: “The app is aimed at construction workers and their families and complements our 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline. We recognise that not everyone feels comfortable talking about their feelings or personal situation, so the ‘Construction Industry Helpline’ app is aimed at people who would like to find out more information about how they can perhaps help themselves or if necessary, take the next step in seeking professional help. It is a preventative tool and aims to provide support at the initial stages of a situation so that the problem does not reach a life-critical stage.”
