According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the construction industry has the highest rate of suicide, as well as the highest number of suicides across all industries. To help combat this problematic issue SMACNA recently made a $2,500 donation to the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention and is now an official Stakeholder with CIASP.
CIASP Stakeholders are the construction companies, labor unions, industry associations, construction service providers and suppliers, and mental health organizations and professionals that have pledged to STAND up for suicide prevention in the construction industry.
The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention (CIASP) is committed to raising awareness about the risk of suicide within the construction industry and providing suicide prevention resources and tools to create a zero-suicide industry.
To donate to CIASP as an individual, company, or chapter, please visit the CIASP website.
