The work of the suicide prevention charity, MATES in Construction SA, will be featured at at the Stop Male Suicide in SA seminar, to be held in Adelaide on Tuesday 15th.
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.
Michelle Caston, the Chief Executive Office of MATES in Construction SA, 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.
