World Suicide Prevention Day

Published on 13 September 2022

Saturday 10th September was World Suicide Prevention Day, an awareness day to provide a worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides.

Within the construction industry lies a culture which prevents many workers from seeking support and help when they may need it, putting further stress on their own mental health and wellbeing.

Today we invited Sefik Villasante, a Confidence and Empowerment Coach to share his own personal story with our staff.

Safik said “I got caught with the pressures of a demanding job which in turn led to my breakdown! A battle with depression and anxiety ensued, taking me to places in my mind that I didn’t want to go. My journey of self-development, compassion and discovering how to cultivate a positive mindset and self-belief ensured the most dramatic of turnaround in fortune and health. I’m passionate about sharing how I got here and continue to be the best version of myself.”
