CONSTRUCTION SUICIDE PREVENTION WEEK
September 5-9, 2022

URGENT:
While we celebrate Labor Day, remember that this week, September 5-9, is construction suicide prevention week. The Construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide. Please let us help each other to prevent suicide and to support our brothers, sisters, all of us in difficult times.
The national suicide prevention hotline (Dial 988) is open 24/7. 
Remember 988 for immediate help for yourself or someone you know.
Related resources are available:

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline— a free and confidential (U.S.) resource that connects individuals with skilled, trained counselors 24/7. Call 988 or 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)

Use the online Lifeline Crisis Chat or reach out to the Crisis Text Line by texting “HELLO” to 741741 to connect with a crisis counselor.

The US OSHA website has a number of resources at https://www.osha.gov/preventingsuicides

Take a moment this week to get or give support and remember that 988 is there in a crisis.
