With more construction workers dying from suicide than work related injuries each year, Lakeside is proud to support 2 Tuff 2 Talk and their efforts in preventing suicide and improving mental health among construction workers in Northwest Ohio.
2 Tuff 2 Talk exists to help construction workers and their families navigate mental health issues through education and a boots-on-the-ground approach. Initiatives including mentorship, advocacy, and education for contractors and workers play a significant role in raising awareness and suicide prevention.
Recently, Lakeside sponsored 2 Tuff 2 Talk’s summer fundraiser, “Clash of the Contractors.” The event brought together a multitude of companies, organizations, union contractors, industry partners, and trades workers for a day of fun, food, and friendly competition.
Lakeside is committed to talking to their employees about mental health, and we are grateful to have a non-profit organization in NW Ohio that is focused on mental health awareness and suicide prevention for union construction workers.
For anyone needing immediate help, please call the Suicide & Crisis Line at #988 or call #911 for an emergency.
