Free Mental Wellbeing Workshops

With good Mental Health and Wellbeing one of the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) core objectives, it is pleased to support and promote a series of FREE online mental health workshops, being organised by its 2020 charity partner, Mates in Mind – www.matesinmind.org

The workshops have been developed specifically for small businesses and the self-employed within the construction sector, to help improve the understanding and self-management of mental health.

Both individuals and businesses this year have faced a multitude of challenges, all of which are expected to negatively impact the already pervasive challenge of workplace mental health issues. For the construction industry, this is particularly critical, as the suicide rate within the sector is already is 3 times the national average.

Mates in Mind recognises many small businesses and sole traders will be struggling due to disruption to work, delays in activity as well as the inevitable knock-on economic stress.

Two workshops area available; one aimed at managers and the other for employees. Register your interest in one of its sessions here:
