Awareness Campaigns- Chris's Story

TRIGGER WARNING: Please note, the following video includes mention of suicide and may be upsetting to some viewers.

Chris, a 30-year veteran of the construction industry, was a caring and loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He worked with some of the biggest companies in the UK and was a well-respected member of the construction industry.

In 2019, Chris suffered a mental health crisis brought on by severe stress, which developed at rapid speed and had catastrophic consequences.

In partnership with Chris’s family and friends, this Stress Awareness Month, 2021 Mates in Mind will be sharing Chris’s story to raise awareness and understanding of the very real impact that workplace stress can have on our lives and the importance of recognising the signs that someone might be struggling.

You can read more about Chris and his story through his wife Michelle’s article detailing her story.

Remember, if you are struggling, you are not alone. There is always someone available to help you. If you or someone you know needs support, our friends at Samaritans are available 24/7 on 116 123, or you can speak to one of the many free, confidential support services.
