Good mental health

Tue 5th Nov 2019

Congratulations were extended this week to Keith Ball, Site Health & Safety Advisor at Harry Peers for his involvement in the Annual Mental Health Conference held in Cumbria on 24th October 2019.

Since attending his first conference in 2018 and realising the crisis that mental health is, Keith made the decision to become more involved to help protect and support our existing workforces in addition to young people coming into the industry.

During this year's conference, a number of guest speakers gave talks and there were numerous breakout sessions throughout the day from groups including 'We Will', a group of young people aged 14-18 who proudly stood and talked about Youth Mental First Aid and how they were supporting schools, local authorities and families to find the courage to talk.

Other speakers included Dramanon Productions, a group of actors who looked at various forms of discrimination, harassment & bullying relating to the workplace and family life interacting with the audience to review the comments for each scenario. The final guest speaker was Satveer Nijjar who put a powerful message across sharing her life experience of self-harm, suicidal ideation and mental ill health.

Since 2018, Keith has trained as a mental health first aider and became a member of the wellbeing forum, joining other likeminded people from the construction industry and the local area with the aim of supporting his fellow workers and improving mental health both in the workplace and at home.

As Keith himself commented,

"By continuing to support and promote a mentally healthy environment, we can stop preventable issues and allow people to thrive and become more productive".

Well said Keith and keep up the good work.
