Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
Suicide is a topic of concern that stems throughout our community. What is even more of a concern is the high percentage of male suicides that take place within the construction arena. According to Mates in Construction, nearly 75% of suicides in the area are male.
Help a Worth Cause which impacts our community!
Mates in Construction was started in 2002 with a vision "to be Australia's leading industry suicide prevention organisation focusing on raising awareness, building capacity, providing help and research." Because of the initiative and the action of Mates in Construction, the number of suicides in the construction area is reducing, however, only marginally.
Like many ideas with great vision, funding is needed to reach the outskirts of our community. As a result, 'The Mates Lunch' is one of the events which raises funds to support this extremely worthy cause.
The Mates Lunch will be held at the Hyatts Regency Hotel on 4 May 2018 from 11:30 am to 3 pm. Former Olympic swimmer, Liesel Jones, will be the guest speaker at this event.
Tickets are $180.00 per person which includes food, drinks, and an entry to win door prizes. Apart from supporting a worthy cause, individuals and businesses will have time to mingle, which could, in turn, build a great circle of networks within the Western Australian community!
