The team at Fulton Hogan are not only building Nowra's new $342 million bridge over the Shoalhaven River, they have also thrown their support behind the Black Dog Institute.
The Nowra Bridge project team and Fulton Hogan nationwide took part in the Black Dog Institute's Mullets for Mental Health.
Many are now sporting homemade mullets after bounty's were placed on heads with coveted crafted into mullet masterpieces.
The team's 'big chop' saw around 15 people, who volunteered or had their locks claimed by the bounty's on their heads, take part.
All are now sporting mullets.
Female project team member Erin Addison-Smith even went as far as allowing a full head shave for the cause.
The Nowra Bridge project team raised around $11,400 and Fulton Hogan offices and sites nationwide raised more than $27,000 which goes towards ground-breaking research and integrating that research into programs that create real-world change.
The mullets raise funds and awareness for the silent killer that is mental illness.
One in five Australians is affected by mental illness each year.
Mental health awareness and suicide prevention is especially important in the construction industry as construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide than an accident at work.
In Australia, a construction worker is lost every second day to suicide so opportunities where people can talk about mental health are extremely important.
