Construction workers struggle with pain, stress from injuries

first_imgConstruction workers are frequently stressed about work-related injuries and pain and often fail to seek help, putting themselves at risk for more injuries and mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and even suicide, according to a new study by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).The study was published online October 1, 2013 in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.“This pilot study [a small study intended to generate hypotheses for further investigation] shows the high prevalence of substantial mental distress in the U.S. construction worker population, and how this distress is strongly related to pain and injuries,” said senior author Silje Endresen Reme, a clinical psychologist and visiting scientist in HSPH’s Department of Environmental Health and a scientist at Uni Research in Norway. “There is a need for increased treatment choices, education, and acceptance of mental disorders in these high-risk workers.”The research evolved from the EPIMC Study (Epidemiologic Pilot Investigating Mental Health among Construction Workers), a project of HSPH’s Center for Work, Health and Well-being and headed by Reme. The new study is the first comprehensive investigation of mental distress among construction workers, according to the authors. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Gerrard: I want to manage Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits it would be a dream to one day manage his boyhood club. “The dream come true would be to manage Liverpool, when the Liverpool job becomes available,” the England captain told TwentyFour 7 Football magazine. “There are world-class managers there ready already, but we’ll have to wait and see, it would be the icing on the cake. “When you get to a certain age, my age, you need to start thinking seriously about a life after football. “I am planning on doing my badges and qualifications over the next 12 months. “I definitely see myself as a manager rather than a coach, but that could change. “I remember speaking to Jamie Carragher and he really fancied it but he’s decided media is what he wants to do. “It’ll be strange seeing him on Sky but I’m really delighted he’s doing it. He can leave managing Liverpool to me!” The 33-year-old midfielder still has at least a couple of years left at the highest level after signing a new contract this summer. But he is looking beyond his playing days and despite a few years ago having reservations about eventually stepping into management, he now wants to pursue that path. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
