The National Federation of Builders (NFB) applauds the Duke of Cambridge’s work on trying to break the stigma surrounding mental health
Prince William will launch a new website, called Mental Health at Work, which aims to raise awareness about mental health in the workplace. The website’s development has been made possible by the Royal Foundation, the charitable trust run by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The site is a collaboration between the foundation and the mental health charities Heads Together and Mind.
The National Federation of Builders (NFB) applauds the Duke of Cambridge’s work on trying to break the stigma surrounding mental health.
Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said: “Suicide is the leading cause of death for adults below the age of 50 across England and the Office of National Statistics reported that some occupations are at greater risk than others. We welcome the launch of Mental Health at Work and recognise the ever-growing importance of this issue across the construction industry.
“Our health and safety advice lines provide support to our members on matters concerning mental health.”
