Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said: “Suicide is the leading cause of death for adults below the age of 50 across England and the Office of National Statistics reported that some occupations are at greater risk than others. We welcome the launch of Mental Health at Work and recognise the ever-growing importance of this issue across the construction industry.
