Suicide Prevention Program - CFMA
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.” That is quite a startling statistic and at such a high rate, it is certain that we have all been affected by suicide in some form.
The Milwaukee Chapter of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA Milwaukee) designed this special program to address suicide within the construction industry. This half-day event (11:30am-4:30pm) at the Country Springs Hotel, 2810 Golf Road, Pewaukee, WI, will feature a series of presentations by industry experts who are working to bring awareness to and address the problem of suicide within the construction industry.
This program is ideal for construction executives and HR professionals in the industry. The Suicide Prevention Seminar will deliver:
Suicide Prevention panel led by Mark Maier, Executive Director of The Face It Foundation. The panel will include Randy Krocka, Administrator, Sheet Metal Occupational Health Institute Trust
and will address how to connect the construction industry to local mental health resources and asses suicide prevention preparedness.
CFMA Milwaukee is inviting those within the construction industry, including those affiliated with CFMA Madison, Surety Association of Wisconsin (SAW), Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee (AGC), and Plumbing Mechanical Sheet Metal Contractors’ Alliance (PMSMCA) to attend this very important program.
The cost to attend is $60 (lunch included). Registration is available at CFMA Milwaukee.
