MATES in Construction NZ
Suicide is everyone’s business, it does not discriminate. Our construction industry is losing nearly one person every week to suicide, and 98% of those that we lose are our men.
The MATES programme builds and strengthens communities in the workplace and across the industry – helping our people to be supportive and provide an environment that encourages positive wellbeing. The impact of this community-based approach then goes beyond the workplace and into our everyday lives.
