Standard: $49.95

Description

The human and financial impacts of untreated or mistreated mental health conditions are staggering. Untreated or poorly managed mental health conditions become apparent in the workplace – sometimes in obvious ways, and sometimes in subtler ways. The construction industry is one of the occupations at greatest risk for suicide. CFMs must have an active role in helping address mental health awareness and promoting suicide prevention in their organizations. Successful leaders will boldly and proactively address the issue.

Learning Objective:

  • Illustrate how mental health and suicide is a business problem
  • Highlight the human and financial impacts of mental health manifestations in the workplace
  • Reveal demographic and other mental health and suicide risk factors that are unique to the construction industry workforce
  • Present a business case for the construction industry to expand mental health awareness and suicide prevention by training leaders and supervisors how to respond
  • Provide a practical toolkit of strategic solutions to create a preventative culture by integrating mental health into safety, wellness, and employee benefit programs
