Let's support mental health!

I have suffered with depression, anxiety & suicidal ideation over the last 10 years in industry working in mining, oil & gas and across heavy industry.  Maintenance workers in heavy industry report dramatically higher suicide rates than the general population.  We need to make a change and support ourselves to become healthy & happy.


Data - 
The suicide rate in the USA is 18 per 100,000

Suicide Rates for Men in Industry - https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-suicide-workplace-idUSKBN2082L3
Mining: 54.2 per 100,000
Oil & Gas: 45.3 per 100,000
Automotive Repair: 39.1 per 100,000
Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing & Hunting: 36.1 per 100,000
Transportation & Warehousing: 29.8 per 100,00
