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.
