In the construction industry, the number two cause of death among men 19 – 54 is suicide, second only to cancer. Our job sites can be the front lines for suicide prevention, if we choose to take it on. Learn how Scott Construction became proactive with mental health in their workplace. In this presentation you’ll learn how to spot the red flags of a potential suicide and what to say – and NOT say – to make a difference to someone in crisis. You’ll also hear from staff who are successfully managing the challenges of living with depression, plus get the tools to start and run your own Mental Health Committee on the job.
Join Donna Grant and Mike Haley from SCOTT Construction for a morning of learning and inspiration.
