Virtual Town Hall: Mental Health, Depression and Ending Stigma in the Construction Industry

Register Here!

Stigma associated with mental health conditions runs high in the construction industry with high rates of suicide. But that’s changing as the industry tackles stigma by raising mental health awareness, engaging in creative campaigns, and helping employees feel psychologically safe seeking treatment when it’s needed.

Join us as leaders in this movement share the innovative ways they’ve busted stigma, engaged leaders, and made a positive difference. Much can be learned from this work, which is especially important as our nation faces a surge in people experiencing mental health conditions.
