Construction Industry Peer Support Project (CIPS)

Managing my stress

An innovative project has been launched to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of construction workers in the Nottingham area.

The Construction Industry Peer Support (CIPS) has a target to support over 100 sector workers in the next 12 months.

Participants will get free access to 24/7 online help from a reputable digital support service - Big White Wall - for people who are stressed, anxious, low or simply not coping.  

They will also be given opportunities to take part in groups and a choice of physical activities aimed at helping them to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle and giving them the tools with which to manage their mental health and wellbeing.
