Mental Health has become a top priority for the construction industry.  The CDC tells us that construction carries some of the highest rates of suicide of any industry.  It doesn't have to be this way.  Join an exciting movement within construction that is making a difference: Get trained in Mental Health Essentials!

About the Course
This 4-Hour Mental Health Essential course will train you how to understand, recognize, and respond to the most common mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance use disorders.  This course hits similar objectives as the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course, but in half the time.  Learn an easy to remember action plan as well as evidence-based tools to recognize when someone is struggling and how to connect them to appropriate help.

Topics Covered
  • Learn basic warning signs to recognize when someone may be struggling and how to prevent crisis by connecting them to help early.
  • Learn how to provide support to someone who may be in crisis related to suicidal thoughts & behaviors, a panic attack, or response to a traumatic event.
  • Deep dive on crisis related to suicidal thoughts and behaviors and how this type of crisis is addressed on a jobsite.
  • Practice powerful evidence based coping strategies to provide others as well as for your own mental wellbeing.
