Mental Health & Suicide Prevention in Construction - How to Build Wellness Programs With Impact

The construction industry is raising awareness and encouraging open discussion about mental health and substance abuse to reduce suicide in the workforce. The COVID-19 pandemic has added stress, anxiety and fear to contractors’ already high risk of suicide. We can all agree this is a scary subject, and we need to address the public health crisis in our country. But how do we heal our workforce? Please use the following resources to help you spot warning signs, start the conversation, and provide support to those who need it, which can save lives. It takes construction professionals at all levels working together and with their risk partners to build a culture of caring and prevention.
