Organiser

Mates in Construction NSW Ltd

MATES in Construction is a community development organisation aimed at reducing suicide and improving mental health and wellbeing within the Australian Construction industry.

Established in Queensland in 2008, MATES in Construction is a federation of independent industry based MATES in Construction organisations in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia.

MATES in Construction was established to implement the recommendations of a major report on suicide [the AISRAP Report] within the Queensland Commercial Building and Construction Industry which found that suicide rates in the industry was higher than the Australian average for men, and that youth suicide within the industry could be as much as 2.38 times common than amongst other young Australian men.

MATES in Construction is all about MATES helping MATES – MATES in Construction is an industry led approach to an industry problem.
