AWARENESS

SUICIDE

"Two months into a new project, I realized I had underbid by $100,000. The pressure mounted, though I didn’t talk about it with my wife or the subcontractors on the job. I thought about my life insurance policy and thought to myself, ‘this money issue gets solved if you’re not around’. It was like an itch that kept talking to me and talking to me. I thought of how my two-year-old son would probably never remember me.

 

I called a suicide hotline three times. One person on the other end of the line told me that if I took my own life, my wife and son had a 50% greater chance of trying the same thing. That put me back in my chair. I couldn’t put that kind of burden on them. I didn’t want them to think it’s an okay thing." -Shared from the AGC Missouri Chapter
