Mental Health & Suicide Prevention


Construction is the second highest-rated industry affected by suicide.

As such, it is an industry imperative to shatter the mental health stigma and create caring cultures within our companies. The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention was established to provide and disseminate information and resources for suicide prevention and mental health promotion in construction.

“In this male-dominated industry, the stoic, macho ‘tough guy’ culture creates barriers to seeking help and acknowledging emotional problems.” - Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas, CEO and Co-Founder of the Carson J Spencer Foundation, clinical psychologist, mental health advocate, and survivor of her brother’s suicide.
