When & How to Talk to Construction Workers About Suicide Prevention
Mental health is an invisible crisis in construction. Nationally in the construction industry, more workers die annually by suicide than by all occupational injuries combined. The uncertainty of COVID-19 created major stress, anxiety, fear and worries among workers and their families. Learn how a culture of caring and wellbeing can reduce the serious risks of mental health, substance misuse and suicide.
The Center for Workplace Mental Health, a program of the American Psychiatric Association Foundation, is conducting this pulse survey to better understand the needs and experiences of the construction industry pertaining to mental health issues. The co-sponsors of this survey are the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), CSDZ, and Holmes Murphy & Associates.
