The statistics around suicide in the construction industry is confronting. The CFMEU is proud to support MATES in Construction, a charity organisation which aims to reduce suicide and improve the mental health and wellbeing issues of workers in the construction industry.
CFMEU supports the MIC model on sites. A program focused on raising awareness, creating pathways to help and ensuring its appropriateness to the workers needs. With the success of the MIC suicide prevention in Queensland, this program is now being delivered in other CFMEU state branches, including WA and ACT.
The CFMEU is a proud ongoing industry partner of Mates in Construction and commends the organisation for continuing to raise mental health awareness and for being active in tackling the issue through workplace programs to help bring about change. Keep up the amazing work MATES.
