At the recent Western Australia Mental Health Conference & Awards 2017 MATES in Construction WA were presented with the Wellbeing Award. This award was presented by Wanslea Family Services for outstanding contribution to prevention and/or promotion in mental health.
The awards celebrate individuals, organisations and groups that have made an outstanding contribution to mental health in Western Australia, and were held as part of the two-day WA Mental Health Conference and presented by the peak body for community-based mental health, the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH).
The team at MATES are proud that the work they are undertaking to care for the mental health of the WA construction industry has been recognised by the greater community. Their work to reduce the occurrence of suicide and improve the wellbeing of the building and construction industry continues.
