Mental Health MOOC
On 12 October 2020, the CIOB launched a new massive open online course (MOOC), entitled ‘Mental Health in Construction’.
On the course, participants will learn to understand signs and symptoms of poor mental health and understand how to manage their own mental wellbeing as well as that of their colleagues. They’ll hear from people in the industry about how to change construction’s culture to end the stigma around mental health.
