Suicide Prevention Month
September is Suicide Prevention Month. Suicide remains the leading cause of death among construction workers. This month we remind everyone to keep their head on a swivel and keep mental health resources on hand to share with a brother or sister in need. If you or someone are in need of resources, please reference the BOSS stickers and QR codes at the job sites (usually located on gang boxes) or visit swcarpenters.org/mental-health. It is up to us to break the stigma.
