We will be discussing a very important topic during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month!
Suicide Prevention & Mental Health in the Construction Industry.

As a male dominated industry, historically, there has been a stigma that we can’t talk about what’s troubling us, our feelings, etc., AGCMO has been working to break that STIGMA since 2019, through education, courage and compassion. Thank you to the AGC for sharing this important information with our members!
