Preventing Suicide in Construction

No cost to attend!

 

April 16, 2020 / 8:00 am – 10:00 am

 

Creating an “Inside the Helmet” Culture of Awareness


Seminar Description:

Learn more about the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention: preventconstructionsuicide.com

Men in the construction and extraction industry have the highest rate of suicide among all occupational groups. Statistically, construction employees are at a higher risk. This is because men, who make up 91% of the construction workforce, are more likely to die by suicide than woman. In addition, the construction industry employs a large population of veterans, who have a 1.5 times greater risk of suicide as compared to non-veterans.

This is a public health crisis. ABC Keystone is committed to providing education in identifying risks among the workforce, creating a normalized culture for conversations about mental health and training helpers for individuals who are struggling.
