Mental Health & Suicide Prevention for Construction Companies

Needs analysis and integration checklist

HOW TO EVALUATE A COMPANY’S MENTAL HEALTH & SUICIDE PREVENTION PREPAREDNESS & CULTURE 

This Needs Analysis has been developed by the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention to aid construction companies in evaluating how they address mental health in the workplace. It will also help determine how they, and their employees, are equipped to handle a mental health or suicide crisis. 

The Needs Analysis is broken into five primary areas of readiness for a company to study:

  1. Corporate attention to/consideration of mental health (building a caring culture).
  2. Resources in place for employees dealing with a mental health issue/personal crisis.
  3. Readiness of the company to assist suicidal employees.
  4. Building protective factors.
  5. Crisis response.

Each section contains questions for evaluation, as well as some initial action steps and areas of consideration to work on improving company readiness. The color-coded column headers are intended to help leaders identify the areas that are in most need of attention.

Company leaders are encouraged to use this as a guide to start the conversations needed to save lives
