Construction workers are dying by suicide at an alarming rate

The suicide rate for males in construction is 75 percent higher than that of the general population. No one is immune, from supervisors to journey workers. This piece in NBC News examines the mental toll working in construction takes, and follows Justin Azbill‘s work to educate the industry about this silent crisis.

“I was working 19-hour days, and then I couldn’t sleep at night. Try that for six months and see where someone would be,” he said. “You start seeing everything negatively, there is this darkness. I was crying myself to sleep.”

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal ideation, don’t hesitate to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. The line is open 24/7 and there’s also online chat if a phone isn’t available.
