ADEY Supports Quality Plumber Week

Mental wellbeing matters

From 7th – 13th October, ADEY will be joining in supporting Quality Plumber Week and their aim to raise awareness of poor mental health, the effects and the support available.

Mental health has been a growing topic of conversation globally, known as the “silent epidemic”, and Quality Plumbing Week aims to continue the growth of awareness in the plumbing and heating industry, so contractors are encouraged to seek support and guidance if, and when, they need it.

In an industry dominated by male workers, it has been found that male site workers are 3 times more at risk of taking steps to end their life than other males in the general population.

The highest rate of suicide in the UK is among men aged between 15 and 49, a key demographic within the industry. Therefore ADEY, is assisting in the promotion of support services available and the steps we can all take to ensure our mental health and the mental health of others is a top priority.

What you can do to help others

If you notice someone might be struggling with mental health issues, there are several actions you can take:

• Encourage them to contact someone for help. The Samaritans, NHS and Mind are just some of the organisations they can call

• You can contact these organisations on their behalf

• Talk to them and listen to them

• If you think there is an immediate danger call 999

Supporting someone who is struggling with mental health can be distressing to yourself too. If you are supporting someone, ensure you are taking care of yourself as well.
