We are a group of Wisconsin construction contractors that have come together to train each other on internal mental health processes, discover third-party resources available, and work to implement these resources into the industry on a macro and micro level.
In 2020, a new idea was tossed out there at a small meeting of Wisconsin construction professionals. "Why don't we all work together to do more for mental health in the construction field?" In 2022, this idea has sparked into a full blown 501(c)(3) non-profit named Wisconsin Construction Wellness Community (WCWC).
Our non-profit group allows us to distribute resources that are not affiliated with one group, so people can feel comfortable using them. Through donations, WCWC puts on technical meetings for the industry at little to no cost to the employers and the employees. We also collaborate with local providers so that people know they can call a trusted person in an urgent situation.
What we do
By getting the message out through so many contractors, supervisors, vendors, relatives, and training classes, we are making a difference in mental health discussions in the workplace. The more normal we make these conversations, the more the stigma will lift, and the more people will get the assistance they need. Our goal is that one day it is just considered normal to talk about mental health in every workplace.
We sincerely thank you for your support of WCWC and getting the word out! The more partnerships and connections we create means more resources are delivered into the hands of those who need them most.
