MATES in Construction is a charity established in 2008 by the construction industry
to reduce the high level of suicide among Australian construction workers.
The MATES Program now operates in the construction, mining and energy industries
and provides mental health awareness and suicide prevention programs
in Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia.
MATES is here to support the construction, mining and energy industries.
However, we can only do this with your support.
Each day EIGHT Australians die by suicide.
Six of those eight are men. Men working in blue-collar occupations are of the highest risk of suicide.
This is why we need to work together to change this statistic – every suicide is one suicide too many.
