Engineering company Spencer Group has launched a mental health support network for staff to combat high rates of depression and suicide among construction workers.
Spencer Group has committed to mental health support, highlighting the fact that two construction workers take their own life every working day. The industry sees a higher rate of mental health issues, particularly depression, than any other industry.
Spencer Group is an engineering firm which contributes to infrastructure projects around the UK. Many of the people making up the new network are staff who themselves have experienced issues with depression and other conditions.
