According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the construction industry has the second highest rate of suicide in the United States. In 2020, a mission-driven group of volunteers from across the construction industry came together with one goal: to save lives. They collaborated to launch the inaugural Construction Suicide Prevention Week — a week dedicated to raising awareness about the high number of suicides in the industry, and to provide resources to help prevent those deaths.

Each year, in conjunction with National Suicide Prevention Month in September, the construction industry dedicates a week to raising awareness about the unique challenges workers face in construction, how it can lead to suicide, and what we can do to prevent it.
