- CFMA Valley of the Sun Suicide Prevention Summit
In Phoenix, Arizona, on April 7, 2016, CFMA’s Valley of the Sun Chapter presented the inaugural Suicide Prevention Summit, a collaboration between construction and local and national mental health professionals discussing suicide prevention for the construction industry. Designed for construction industry CEOs, CFOs, Human Resource professionals, and Safety and Risk managers, the event provided a wealth of knowledge and resources to more than 100 industry professionals. Summit attendees heard personal stories of loss, participated in a panel discussion, connected with community mental health professionals, and took away resources to help promote mental health and suicide prevention as part of their companies’ overall wellness initiatives.
Cal Beyer, Director of Risk Management at Lakeside Industries and Executive Committee member of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, lauded, “The overwhelming support from sponsors and the strong participation by contractors reinforces this is a topic whose time has come. Great strides have been made in breaking the wall of silence around mental health and suicide prevention. The construction industry workforce is at risk and contractors want to learn how to build a caring culture to help their employees get the assistance they need to cope with life struggles. I've never been more proud to be a CFMA member.”
