Mental health is a lingering symptom of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director of the World Health Organization, “It is now crystal clear that mental health needs must be treated as a core element of our response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.” He also said, “A failure to take people’s emotional wellbeing seriously will lead to long-term social and economic costs to society.”

Based on these comments, it is clear that the mental health challenges construction employees and companies face are not almost over but are just beginning, and that the negative impacts to businesses and society could be significant. 

Our own Ray White, Co-Founder of Joyages, talks about this in an article he authored in Construction Executive titled “Using Technology to Help Solve the Mental Health Crisis in Construction.”
