Mates in construction: stay in touch with mates during the break
Mates in construction are advising workers in the construction industry to keep an eye on each other during the Christmas break.
The website states that some 'Mates' may be spending Christmas alone as a result of family break-ups and divorce, and some may be in trouble financially and facing problems of providing for their families' Christmas expectations.
There will be some who will be seriously looking at suicide as a way out during that time, otherwise so special to the rest of us.
A simple phone call to check they are OK could make the difference!
If you need help or know someone who could do with support, contact Mates in Construction on 1300 642 111.
