About this Event
July 7, 2021
3 - 4:30 PM (ET), 12 - 1:30 PM (PT)
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. This session focuses on WHY these topics are imperative for construction leaders at all levels. Learn stigma reduction strategies that you and your company can do to help promote mental wellbeing and reduce the risk of suicide among your workforce and our industry.
After this session, attendees will be able to:
- Demonstrate how to break the stigma of mental health and suicide
- Illustrate why mental health, substance misuse, and suicide prevention are workplace issues
- Identify the industry and demographic risk factors that lead to suicide
- Share resources for employers to address these topics with employees and families
