Construction Working Minds was established to increase industry awareness, provide valuable resources and create a network that seeks to let people know: suicide affects everyone and we have a shared responsibility to prevent it; it is courageous to ask for help; you (an individual in crisis, a supervisor, a workplace) are not alone – lots of resources exist to help you through a suicide crisis.
Our website has been designed to inspire hope and provide a collaboration portal that offers practical tools that are easily understood. We value the science and the stories of suicide prevention and combine both to guide us in providing positive and impactful resources.
We believe change is possible and that it is our individual actions that can bring about that change.

Cal Beyer: My Journey to Find Meaning After My Friend/Coworker's Suicide
By Emily Alvarez
Stories of lived experience can be used to fight the stigma of mental illness and suicide and to help get people involved in the movement. These journeys humanize the suicide prevention movement and help other people seek help. This series on lived experience is a great chance to highlight a loss survivor's story and the search for meaning after loss.
Cal Beyer is a friend of our CEO Sally Spencer-Thomas, as well as a friend to our organization. He lost a coworker last February and has been making meaning out of the loss ever since.
