SHARE THE CARE
Mental Health Screening Portal Open Through November
A brief screening is the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional – a checkup from your neck up. The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention partnered with Screening for Mental Health to create a screening portal for those in the construction industry, which will be open through November. This program is completely anonymous and confidential; immediately following the brief questionnaire, you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.
