But for those suffering in silence, the idea of sharing their concerns might feel impossible; so in a bid to put a human, relatable face to the issue, Feasibility Manager Gary McClatchey has shared his recent story, in a candid and inspirational video – launched on 10 October – World Mental Health Day.
Gary and Willmott Dixon would like to invite their construction colleagues to share the video openly with their workforces; someone watching may be fighting their own private battle right now and hopefully Gary’s story will encourage them to take the first steps in getting help.
Mark French, Head of Health, Safety and Environment for Willmott Dixon, commented: “We have recently trained our own Mental Health First Aiders to be on-hand for anyone needing support and we would strongly encourage other employers to do the same. The fact is that you could be someone’s one and only lifeline.”
