Why Suicide Prevention Matters
Are you “One of the Ones”? Read about one person’s experience of coming to understand the urgent need to address mental health and prevent suicide in the construction industry.
Uniting the Construction Industry Behind Suicide Prevention
This eye-opening and engaging webinar revealed the real and immediate need to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health and prevent suicide in the construction industry: more than 56% of attendees who responded to polling questions were unaware that the construction industry has the highest number of suicides and is ranked #2 for suicide rate, and 68% reported experiencing mental illness or suicidal thoughts personally or observed either in a family member.

Bob Swanson, a retired construction executive who lost his son to suicide, joined other industry panelists to explain the challenges of overcoming the mental health stigma and discuss the need for change in order to save lives. If you missed it, want to watch it again, or perhaps share it with your peers, this 90-minute session can be
viewed on-demand for free.
