Health and Safety Impact Video – Gary’s Story

Summary

Mental health is an area that has significant stigma associated with it. One in four people suffer with mental health issues in any given year and the suicide rate in the construction industry greatly exceeds that in wider society. The film illustrates how people you see every day can be suffering in silence, how it’s important to be aware and understand mental health issues and how showing that you care about the health of your colleagues by listening and offering support can make a real difference.

The short film is shown below and is accompanied by discussion notes that will help the viewer understand the risk.
