May is Mental Health Month
May is Mental Health Awareness month and a great opportunity to highlight the importance of taking care of our emotional and mental wellbeing to our employees. Mental health is a huge component of the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s (CIASP’s) suicide prevention efforts and one really cannot be addressed without the other. Because of this, we feel that May is the perfect time to take the pledge to STAND up for Suicide Prevention.
Have you taken the pledge yet? No matter what your role in the industry – CIASP has a pledge for you! Contractors, Unions, Associations, Service Providers like CPAs, Insurance Companies and Sureties, Partners in the Mental Health & Suicide Prevention space and also Project Owners. We all have a role to play in addressing mental health and suicide prevention in the construction industry.
If you have pledged – please let others know – and encourage them to do the same. Post the actions you are taking on social media, tag theCIASP, and use the hashtag #STANDupforSuicidePrevention.
