Other TitlesWhy Company Leaders Must Address Mental Health, Substance Misuse and Suicide Prevention NOW
AbstractIn today’s rapidly changing economy, mental health is top of mind for business leaders from various companies in all industries. This includes construction companies. It has not always been that way. Historically, mental health was a taboo topic in the workplace and even more so on jobsites. Stigma was the barrier that kept people from acknowledging that they were not OK. Seeking help was seen as a sign of weakness rather than as a sign of strength. Stigma remains a barrier that keeps people from either offering or seeking help. Stigma is a fear of the unknown combined with a fear of judgement from others or fear of con- sequences – both real and perceived.
