Our Crisis and Counseling Hotline Answers 24/7/365

Almost 5,500 construction workers end their own life every year. In fact, more construction workers die by suicide each year than by all other construction-related fatalities, combined.

Union carpenters are not immune. At a recent UBC conference, 76% of attendees said their company or Local Union lost a worker or family member to suicide.

The SECRC wants to help.

Weve set up an Employee Assistance Program in partnership with a group called Empathia to address matters of a person nature. These may include financial concerns, drug or alcohol abuse, relationship issues or even questions about maintaining your wellness

The LifeMatters program is now available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Its also available for your family. Call 1-800-634-6433. We encourage you to become familiar with the new benefit now, so that you and your family can take advantage of it as your needs arise.
