Staff from Tamdown recently attended a ‘Mental Health First Aid’ course supported by Mates in Mind and our group charity Nexus Community Trust.

This is the second group of our people who have undertaken this training and all our employees will be invited to mental health awareness training over the next eighteen months, and all line managers, site supervisors and engineers will be trained in managing conversations around wellbeing.

At least one person takes their own life every day in the construction industry, and our partnership with Mates in Mind is to encourage our people take the time to have a conversation with colleagues and other work mates on site and off about their wellbeing.
