Join the CFMA Milwaukee Chapter for an education seminar that addresses suicide prevention in the construction industry. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The construction and extraction industries have the second-highest rate of suicide – 53.3 per 100,000 workers.”

This education session will offer construction companies tools and takeaways for evaluating how mental health is addressed in the workplace. Determine company readiness and how you and your employees are equipped to handle a mental health or suicide crisis.

CFMA Milwaukee’s program is designed for members of your leadership team and HR departments. We encourage you to attend and start the conversations needed to save lives.

Meier__Mark_2018.jpgMark Meier founded Face It in 2009 for one simple reason: Collectively, we need to do a better job of helping men who battle depression.

For many reasons, it’s still difficult for men to acknowledge they are struggling with depression. Many won’t seek the help of a mental health professional, coping instead through destructive behaviors. Mark will share his connection to this important topic, what the data tells us, and what can be done.
