To contribute to the conversation around mental health and suicide prevention, the National Glass Association has organized a panel discussion with mental health advocates in the glass and fenestration industry.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, organized by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), designed to raise awareness and provide hope to those affected by suicide.

Suicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States and affects all of us. Specific to the glass and fenestration industry, in 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that men working in construction have one of the highest suicide rates compared to other industries, averaging four times higher than the general population.

To contribute to the conversation around mental health and suicide prevention, the National Glass Association has organized a panel discussion with mental health advocates in the glass and fenestration industry. Those attending GlassBuild America will have the opportunity to join this discussion and hear about efforts to raise awareness, increase suicide prevention and change the stigma surrounding mental illness.
