CONEXPO-CON/AGG has launched a mental health online resource for the construction industry. It provides resources, personal stories and advice for employers and workers. 

Content includes the CONEXPO-CON/AGG podcast where Denis Cashman shares his battle with addiction and his journey of recovery. Another episode, featuring Ryan Preistly, tackles managing the stress of construction and how to maintain a work/life balance in an industry that doesn’t always make it easy to sit back and appreciate achievements.  

"Encouraging Men to Talk About Mental Health," examines why research shows men die by suicide four times more than women. It also explores the path to destigmatizing mental health and how to encourage men and women to talk about these issues.

Other resources and articles include topics such as coping with stress, tips to support employees and improving mental health.

With the backdrop of May as Mental Health Awareness month, the new initiative focuses on creating a supportive community. CONEXPO-CON/AGG said it is committed to bringing awareness to the mental health struggles prevalent in the construction sector and fostering an environment where seeking help and discussing mental wellness is normalized and encouraged.

“The construction industry is filled with professionals committed to precision in everything they do,” said CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director Dana Wuesthoff. “This level of attention and care must also be given to the mental health of all construction professionals.  CONEXPO-CON/AGG is committed to breaking down stigmas and creating a future where mental health isn’t an afterthought but the cornerstone of our industry.”

The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 3-7, 2026.
