Digital Mental Fitness Program for Construction Professionals

A recent article on Sourceable.net reminded us of the importance of efficiency in the construction industry in delivering much needed infrastructure, which is central to the nation’s future economic prosperity.

A company has released a new well being program called digital mental fitness to decrease stress induced absences by 62 per cent and increase work efficiency by 40 per cent.

The article highlights that annually around $11 billion is lost due to poor mental health among employees with around $146 million a year being paid in workers’ compensation claims for poor mental health.

Suicide and suicidal behaviour is estimated to cost $1.75 billion annually and is an issue that needs to be addressed in the construction industry nation-wide.

A digital mental fitness program can prove effective in providing help before its too late. The program is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

CBT has proven effective in improving mental health and well-being by managing negative thoughts so they don’t become negative feeling which start by negatively affecting our relationships and efficiency. This can lead to mental health problems like stress, anxiety and depression.

While CBT usually involves a face-to-face appointment, the digital mental fitness program based on CBT is delivered online which makes it easily accessible for all workers. Find out more at: https://sourceable.net/digital-mental-fitness-program-for-construction-professionals/
