Every Mind Matters

HB Projects Ltd is proud to support World Mental Health Day and to continue its ongoing mental health education programme.

We are excited to announce that all HB Projects employees, who are not already Mental Health First Aiders, will participate in a half day mental health awareness course or a one day ‘Champion Course’ for line managers. This training will take place between Nov 2019 and March 2020. There are also plans to create Wellbeing Champion ‘hubs’ in our three regional offices; where employees can be involved with planning initiatives and campaigns.

Danielle Brearton, Learning and Development Officer, comments: “This investment will mean that all of our 190 team members will have an introduction to mental health and have an understanding of how to identify signs of mental ill health and be confident to approach and offer support to colleagues who may be struggling. HB Projects will continue to do all it can to ensure the mental health of our people is a priority and the stigma associated with talking about mental health is removed.”

Training will be provided by Blue Ridge Performance Management and funding is being received from CITB and Promoting Construction West Yorkshire.
