Name
Promoting Mental Well-being and Suicide Awareness in Construction
Date & Time
Tuesday, December 7, 2021, 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM
Description

Construction is a physically and mentally demanding industry, but construction workers are not always the best at letting people know when they need help. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ranked the construction industry as one of the highest for suicide. How do we get an industry to start talking about suicide, addiction and mental well-being? It starts by learning about tools, resources and programs that encourage workers to reach out and get the help they need. Creating self-awareness, starting conversations and changing the work culture can help save your co-workers’ lives.
