CHASNZ, with assistance from Dr. Kate Bryson and the Mental Health Foundation, has made available two new documents.
The second is a simple pocket guide is for all workers to assist before, during and after a conversation about mental health occurs with a worker. The intent is to normalise these conversations and create better workplace supportive bonds. This guide is consistent and supported by the upcoming launch of Mates in Construction, which will be established here in New Zealand in November 2019.
CHASNZ has been working on a Mental Health in Construction Strategy. An initial workshop was held in Auckland on the 12th August with attendees from industry, the mental health sector and Government. There was wide agreement that a co-ordinated approach across our industry was needed to better understand the drivers of mental health for our people and to target the problems and opportunities that will have the most benefit.
If you require any bulk printed copies of the documents or would like your company logos added to the documents, CHASNZ can arrange this.
