Skiles Group Advocates for Mental Health Awareness

June 20, 2024

With high rates of substance abuse, divorce, and suicide, mental health in the construction industry is an urgent issue. We want to help highlight the industry’s need for change, and this video is just one way we are joining the conversation about mental health awareness in our industry.

We believe there’s a better way to build—and that means creating a safer, healthier, and more respectful environment that prioritizes the well-being of people.

We invite you to view the video and join us in raising awareness for mental health.
