In honour of R U OK Day, we want to ensure Aussie builders and tradies are doing okay.
As resilient and hardworking individuals in the Australian construction industry, we must acknowledge and prioritise our mental health. The demanding nature of our work, long hours, and high-stakes projects can take a toll on our well-being. In this article, we’ll discuss the importance of mental health, highlight relevant statistics in the Australian construction industry, introduce support organisations, and provide ten practical ways to nurture your mental well-being. Remember, it’s okay not to be okay; seeking help is a sign of strength.
