The Missouri AFL-CIO created the Missouri Works Initiative (MWI), in part, to help ensure workers across the state of Missouri are well-informed when it comes to issues of workplace safety – both physical and mental aspects. For a number of years, labor leaders have expressed their concerns when it comes to the increase of deaths related to substance abuse and suicide. Without a doubt, mental health has come to the forefront due to the impact of COVID-19. Please note that September is Suicide Prevention Awareness month. To this end, we wish to thank OSHA leadership, in Washington, DC, as well as our (public and private) partners here in Missouri for recognizing the importance of STOPPING the STIGMA.
