Why not talking about mental health is killing us

A comprehensive survey of the real estate sector undertaken by EG last month, revealed that one in four in the industry had considered taking their own life and that 35% of the circa 700 people who filled out the survey thought that working in the sector had an impact on their mental health.

The figures are hard to read, upsetting to report and well above national averages.

In this episode of the EG Property Podcast editor Samantha McClary and lead reporter on the issue, Lucy Alderson, sit down with Henrietta Frater, HSE and wellbeing manager at The Crown Estate, Melanie Olrik, head of HR at Hollis and Juilet Smithson, head of operations at RICS charity Lionheart, to discuss the finding and find out why the real estate industry is facing a mental health epidemic.
