Willmott Dixon continues to encourage colleagues to talk about mental health


Willmott Dixon has launched its second infographic as part of its All Safe Minds mental fitness campaign, designed to keep its colleagues talking

The new infographic has been released to reinforce the on-going message that we all need to be aware when it comes to our own mental fitness and that of our friends, work-mates and loved ones.

The infographic uses a YES/NO scenario, which stresses how easily life can get on top of us and how quickly we can spiral if we keep things bottled up.

All Safe Minds

The All Safe Minds campaign was launched in 2017, in response to the alarming statistics surrounding depression and suicide amongst young men in the construction sector. It has gained some major coverage over the past year, and the company is determined to keep the momentum up.

Mark French, head of health safety and environment at Willmott Dixon Group, said: “The initial response to All Safe Minds has been overwhelmingly positive. Our industry partners and the trade press have all been highly supportive, but this is a continuing challenge and we need to keep driving the campaign forward.

“Attitudes are definitely changing, and from an internal viewpoint we at Willmott Dixon are seeing a massive increase in people coming forward, asking for support either for themselves, or out of concern for a colleague.

“But we also understand there are people who just aren’t comfortable talking face-to-face about life’s problems, so the infographic is there to highlight the resources you can tap into privately. There are many routes to support, we just need to keep reminding each other of what they are.”
