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.
