MATES in Construction supports Stop Male Suicide in NSW seminar

MATES in Construction (MIC) is supporting the Stop Male Suicide in NSW seminar, to be held in Sydney on Tuesday 31st May.

MIC is a charity established in 2008 to reduce the high level of suicide among Australian construction workers. Construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide than an accident at work, with 190 Australians working in the construction industry taking their own lives every year.

Carolyn Kelso, the  Case Manager/Field Officer for MATES in Construction (NSW) will be speaking at the seminar that will bring together people who are committed to taking action to help Stop Male Suicide, which currently takes the lives of six men in Australia every day.

Carolyn has worked for the suicide prevention charity, MATES in Construction (NSW) for three years, delivering suicide prevention training and case managing over 300 people. Carolyn has a Diploma in Community Services Work and a Bachelor of Social Sciences and is passionate about making a difference for communities through education and supporting people at risk.
