Shining Light on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention in the Construction IndustryMental health and suicide prevention are construction leadership issues. The construction industry has the second highest rate of suicide among all occupations. Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho are all high risk states at #2, #2 & #5, respectively.
