Viewpoint Supports Mental Health Awareness Week


Viewpoint, the construction software provider, is supporting Mental Health Awareness Week (14th to 20th of May) by providing its clients with a way to deal with stress, under the guiding beam of The Lighthouse Club.

The Lighthouse Club statistics reveal stress, depression or anxiety accounts for a fifth of all work-related illness and, shockingly, every year more than 400 construction workers take their own lives. It is a vital port of call for construction families in crisis and is the only charity that provides financial and emotional support to the industry’s community, reaching out following injury, long term illness or to simply offer a helping hand.

People logging into Viewpoint for Projects and Viewpoint Field View – for which there are over 450,000 registered users – will be signposted to the charity which provides support to those in the construction industry coping with stress, depression, anxiety or illness.

“Since 1956 our charity has been dedicated to the welfare and support of construction families in the UK and Ireland. Our 24/7 helpline is free and available for everyone in our industry. We are delighted that Viewpoint are promoting our charity’s Construction Industry Helpline during Mental Health Awareness week and reaching out to families and individuals in crisis,” said Bill Hill, CEO of The Lighthouse Club.

“Since our inception we have delivered more than £17.5 million in charitable services and supported over 16,500 families. We know we have a major issue with the mental health of the construction workforce and thanks to companies like Viewpoint spreading our message we can deliver even more,” he continued.
