Mental health and suicide prevention resources

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and it takes all of us to make sure no life is lost to suicide. The Builders' Association is committed to providing support and resources to end the stigma around mental wellness in the construction industry. As a member of MO/KAN Suicide Prevention Task Force, we're partnering with other businesses and organizations in the region to bring more attention to this important conversation. Below are resources and more information about mental health and suicide prevention.
