SEATTLE — The Puget Sound Chapter of the Construction Financial Management Association and Associated General Contractors of Washington will hold a Regional Suicide Prevention Summit Oct. 24 in Bothell.

The free event is from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Local #302 International Union of Operating Engineers, 18701 120th Ave. N.E. It will focus on how to integrate mental health, suicide prevention and addiction recovery into safety, health and employee benefit practices.

Washington State Secretary of Health Dr. John Wiesman is among the speakers and Cal Beyer of Lakeside Industries in Issaquah is the moderator.

Beyer said a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found the construction industry has the second highest rate of suicides per 100,000 workers, at 53.3.
