Last week we launched the first instalment of Cracks in the Foundation: Mental Health, Substance Use and Construction, a DCN-JOC Special Series. It featured five articles with information spanning North America on the impacts of substance use in construction. It was meant to set the stage and show readers the seriousness of this crisis that plagues the industry. Here are this instalment’s stories we hope will help move this conversation forward and help find solutions on these issues.
*Our second instalment will feature firsthand accounts from those who were willing to share their stories of addiction and mental health struggles. It will be released in October.
