Take the Pledge

    As a stakeholder and friend of the construction industry, I/we pledge to STAND Up for Suicide Prevention through the principles set forth by the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention.

    Safe: We pledge to create a culture in which team members feel safe to ask for help if they are having suicidal thoughts or if they are concerned that their fellow co-workers are at risk of suicide.

    Training: We pledge to make suicide prevention training available to all team members so that they can recognize the warning signs and be equipped to help those at risk.

    Awareness: We pledge to raise awareness by sharing the message of suicide prevention through such organizational activities as trainings, safety meetings, toolbox talks, team meetings, newsletters, and social media posts.

    Normalize: We pledge to normalize the topic of suicide prevention as a health and safety priority by talking about suicide, suicide prevention, and mental health.

    Decrease: We pledge to help decrease the risk of suicide in construction by ensuring that all team members have access to an awareness of our EAP/MAP, behavioral health benefits, screening tools, community crisis support, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and Crisis Text Line.

    I/we are comitted to this model to STAND up for Suicide Prevention and will use it to impact our members and share it with others in the industry.
