In this episode, I talk with Michelle Walker, VP of Finance and Administration of SSC Underground, about suicide prevention in the construction industry.
According to the CDC, while we as an industry rarely discuss it, construction ranked #1 for suicides by career. It’s a serious issue that Michelle and the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention are bringing to light.
We discuss why mental health/suicide is an issue, to begin with, what we can all do to address it, and why it’s ok not to be ok.
