Supporting your MATES in Construction
MATES in Construction (MIC) is a program designed to deliver mental health and wellbeing support to workers in the building and construction industry.
The program began in Queensland, however it was announced in July 2012 that this program is set to operate nationally.
Statistics show that workers in the Queensland Construction industry are six times more likely to die from suicide than from an industrial accident.
MIC raises awareness of suicide in the industry and ensures appropriate help is readily available. With ‘mates looking out for mates’ a key component of the program, it recognises that colleagues can support those who are struggling.
