This year the
World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) has chosen "suicide prevention" as the theme for
World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2019
This day of awareness helps to shine a light on the shockingly high suicide rates within the Construction and Agricultural industries. Both high pressured, often isolated make dominated work environments have experienced above average suicide rates (based on ONS 2011-2015).
