Every year, approximately 4500 Canadians die of suicide. Each day, 250 Canadians attempt suicide and 12 Canadians die. What is alarming is that construction workers have suicide rates that are 65% higher than other industries. Many factors and circumstances – trauma, addiction, depression, isolation, financial woes, serious physical illness, and major life changes can contribute to someone ending their life, not just mental illness.

In this 90-minute workshop, tailored to the construction industry, participants will learn about the prevalence and risk of suicide amongst our peers. We will learn what you can do if you are concerned about yourself, or someone you know. We will discuss how to cope if someone you know dies of suicide and will direct you to valuable resources.
