Mental Ill Health vs Mind Fitness
The construction industry of nearly 3 million workers is a unique, largely male population. For many, ‘mental health’ is considered negative, challenging, debilitating and disempowering.
Ownminder helps educate and promote the fact our psychological health sits on a simple continuum, much like physical health, with mental ill health at one end and mind fitness at the other.
By promoting ‘Mind Fitness’ to mean positive mental health, Ownminder is helping to change the narrative around psychological health using positive language and new, more relevant terminology that helps cast off the negative stigma currently associated with ‘mental heath’.
Mind Fitness gives all workers the ability to engage with their psychological health from a more positive, proactive stand point in the same way they would for their physical health.
