Building Mental Health (Suicide Prevention)

Building Mental Health (Suicide Prevention)

September 9, 2020

Currently, the United States construction industry now leads with the highest suicide rate at 50 people taking their lives for every 100,000 industry workers according to the CDC. There are about 11 million industry workers as of 2019.  We share ideas to provide help to those in need and build up our own mental health. Frank King, the Mental Health Comedian, says "You can make a difference, you can save a life, I can show you how."  The Easier, Better, for Construction Show is where people working to make building easier and better share how.

Make Work Visible

The ideas and actions that made it possible for an architect and general contractor to work happily together include thinking we have the power to make our work better and a knack for making it visible to let it flow easier. Can the Last Planner System (Pull Planning), Kanban, and Scrum play nicely? Bruce Cousins and I think so. The Easier, Better, for Construction Show is where people working to make building easier and better share how.
