MATES in Construction

We have engaged MATES in Construction to increase suicide prevention work in WA.

Construction Training Fund are building better mental health by engaging MATES in Construction to deliver MATES in Construction’s General Awareness Training, Connector Training and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training programs, because we know the risk of suicide for construction workers is 53% higher than the risk for other employed workers in Australia. We are all stronger when we work together to create a resilient industry where there is greater awareness, better education and everyone feels supported.
