Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month is a time to reflect on our well-being and that of our loved ones. We all juggle home, family, friends, and work, often putting our mental health last. This constant juggle can lead to stress and impact our well-being.

Portview recently invited the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity to our office in Belfast and our project site in London, sharing the importance of well-being and how to access support in the construction sector. The visit sparked vital discussions about mental health, emphasising the need to speak up, seek help, and support one another.

Remember to balance your activities using the acronym ACE:
ACHIEVE – work & study
CONNECT – with friends & family
ENJOY – fun & play

When we feel stressed, we often spend too much time on activities that help us achieve and less on enjoyment and connecting with others. Getting the balance right in all three areas helps us feel less stressed, improves our mood, and helps us manage anxiety more effectively.
