Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Prevention, construction occupations have the highest rate of suicide, as well as the highest number of suicides across all occupational groups.

Join us for an informative workshop and learn more about the risk of suicide in the construction industry, and the resources available to companies to take the steps necessary to make suicide prevention a health and safety priority, build mental health literacy, and normalize conversations surrounding suicide and mental health in the industry.
