This is What We Do, Who We Serve, and How You Can Help!

CSPP Overview VIDEO Thank You To Hoffman Construction Company for Sponsoring This Video.

In response to the staggering rate of suicide deaths among construction industry workers the construction industry, Lines For Life, a statewide non-profit dedicated to substance abuse and suicide prevention, partnered with the construction industry to form the Construction Suicide Prevention Project (CSPP).

The CSPP represents large and small construction companies, subcontractors, building trades, unions, safety specialists, OSHA, SAIF, and healthcare partners. In 2020, we developed a strategic plan centered around three high-level objectives aimed at reducing suicide and promoting mental wellness on and off the construction site.

Our mission: To develop and implement a unified strategy for reducing suicide and promoting mental well-being in the construction industry.

With this mission, CSPP aims to become a vital resource to help the construction industry lower suicide rates and improve mental health among construction workers. We envision a construction culture of mental wellness that matches our tenacious commitment to physical safety.

Today, the construction industry loses more workers to suicide than workplace accidents.  The construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide among any other industry in our country. The Construction Suicide Prevention Partnership is committed to changing this dynamic. We are determined to help our people overcome crises by removing the stigma preventing people from reaching out for help. A vital component of reaching people in the construction industry is visibility. We believe in promoting positive mental health messages and sharing resources every day on the work onsite. Our goal is to offer support across all races, genders, beliefs, and backgrounds, engaging in the very moment where we can increase our connection to each other, building hope.

“Our purpose is to prevent suicide. We know that many people, from all walks of life, think about suicide. But we also know that for every person who dies by suicide, there are 280 people who think seriously about it but don’t act on it – folks who find a way forward, who see hope – who say Not Today. Those who have found in that very moment, buried deep, one last ounce of resilience and possibility. This is the space where our hope lives. This is our moment. Our most important action. To create a space for life. To pour light onto a new path. Let’s restore belief. Refocus what is. Recover a flame of self-worth that warms a fragile existence. Together, let’s prepare a tomorrow that welcomes a fellow human being to arrive as perfect as they are.”
