As a company whose roots began in construction, GEOCON is aware of and concerned about the prevalence of men’s health issues in the industry.
One particular area of concern is mental health, with research showing that workers in the construction industry are at a high risk of experiencing some form of mental illness.
GEOCON General Manager – Construction, Damon Smith said that the company wanted to throw its support behind an organisation that supports young men who may need help getting through tough times.
“This is one of the reasons GEOCON is backing Menslink, a Canberra charity that provides mentoring and counselling to guys in the community and in local schools,” he said.
“We believe in the importance of supporting a local charity where the benefits will directly benefit local people, particularly one that might one day make a difference to the lives of our employees.”
“GEOCON is proud to partner with Menslink and hope we can help improve the lives of young men and their families throughout Canberra.”
