IEC Stands Up for Suicide Prevention
 
In partnership with the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), IEC stands up for suicide prevention. In observance of mental health awareness month, we are recognizing the health and safety priority to raise awareness of prevention and reduce the risk associated with suicide in the construction industry.  
 
We prioritize safe cultures, providing training to identify and help those at risk, raising awareness about the suicide crisis, normalizing conversations around suicide and mental health, and ultimately decreasing the risks associated with suicide.
