The physical health and well-being of people working in the construction industry is an area of focus for the entire sector. There is, however, a tangible and increasing concern around mental health. The construction industry lifestyle can be challenging and stressful and it is now being more widely recognised that work-related stress and mental health issues can be even higher in the construction industry.

‘Constructing Mindsets’ is a platform to discuss how to talk about and deal with mental health in the construction industry. Constructing Mindsets provides a place to share experiences, listen to others and create a movement for change around mental health.

Join us at this online event to hear from two of the four people behind Constructing Mindsets: Hannah Schaapkens, senior electrical engineer and mental health blogger/mentor/speaker at Engineer Your Mind, and Louise Hetherington, structural engineer at Atkins and 2019 winner of the WICE Awards ‘Best Young Woman Engineer’.
