October is #WorldMentalHealth Day. We are proud to break the silence and stigma surrounding mental ill-health in the Construction Industry which can play a vital role in suicide prevention. GI have 19 Mental Health First Aiders spread across various sites and our Office HQ. Take the opportunity today and any other day, to ask your family, friends or colleagues are they ok and remember it’s #OkNotToBeOk
