13th – 19th May marks Mental Health Awareness Week 2024. This year’s focus surrounds Movement: Moving more for our mental health.

Despite the advice to "move more for your mental health," 82% of UK adults acknowledged in a recent study by The Mental Health Foundation that physical activity is important for improving mental health. However, over one-third of UK adults don’t meet the World Health Organization's recommendations because of obstacles such as stress, finding the time, bad weather, anxiety, and exhaustion. According to the Institute of Government and Public Policy, 82% of UK construction workers experience mental health issues.

Regular movement helps to protect your mental health, increase energy, reduce stress and anxiety as well as boosting self-esteem and decreasing risks of depression by up to 30%.

With Brogan Group employee’s welfare being a top priority, trained mental health first aiders in the UK and Ireland are on hand to offer support and advice for both office and on-site staff. We are also members of the Lighthouse Club who amongst other things, offer a 24-hour helpline service providing free support for all construction workers and families.
