Propav Construção e Montagem supports the Yellow September campaign for the Prevention of Suicide. Our company has a program of actions and awareness to improve the quality of life of our employees, their families and society: PROVIDA.

Mental Health is a topic addressed by the program, as due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Brazilians began to show symptoms of anxiety and depression. According
to our occupational physician, Dr.Hélio Camerano Junior, “anxiety, very prevalent these days, is an evil that affects mainly young people and those ‘dependent on social networks’. Virtual aggressions have a destabilizing and often devastating force on the mental balance of these people, leading to crises, and the next stage is depression.”

It alerts you to the main symptoms which are: difficulty relaxing, exaggerated fears, difficulty performing daily activities, agitation, easy irritability, muscle tension, headaches and body, repetitive negative thoughts, insomnia, chronic health concerns, finances and professional life, palpitation and/or chest pain, bouts of tachycardia (rapid heart), shortness of breath and vomiting.

So, be aware of the symptoms and seek medical and/or psychological help. At Propav, the employee must look for the occupational medicine sector of their work unit.

All united for mental health and suicide prevention!
