In January 2017, British Safety Council helped to launch the Mates in Mind programme, which provides information, support and training on mental health for the construction industry. In February 2018, the British Safety Council launched a range of mental health training courses which are designed to start conversations about mental health and support employees who are experiencing mental ill-health.
