Suicide Rates in the construction industry are twice as high as the national average.
It is important we address the stigmas surrounding mental health, and always do our best to show up for those in need. It can be extremely difficult to let someone in when going through hard times, so taking the extra effort to check in on your teammates’ mental health and show empathy for those around us can make all the difference.
Every person has to navigate the highs and lows of our lives, but no one should have to do it alone.
Thank you to Elly Carroll and Rian Martinsen for helping highlight the importance of open communication about mental health.
