CIASP Launches COVID-19 Mental Health Initiative

Apr 30, 2020

Suicide Prevention-1215837471 600x332The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention (CIASP) has launched a COVID-19 Resources page with tools and information to increase proactive factors in COVID-19 response plans that will help protect employees’ mental health.  

Employers play a key role in not only taking care of their employees’ physical health and safety, but also their mental health. This is a stressful event and some people may be having difficulty coping with the added stress and uncertainty. CIASP provides resources to educate yourself and help you navigate through this challenging time. 

Additionally, if you have not already taken the pledge to STAND up for Suicide Prevention, now is the time to affirm your commitment to worker safety and mental health. By creating safe cultures, providing training to identify and help those at risk, raising awareness about the suicide crisis in construction, normalizing conversations around suicide and mental health, and  decreasing the risks associated with suicide in construction, you commit to a safer workplace and the well-being of all employees in construction.

Pledge to STAND up for suicide prevention today.
