MPAQ Charity Partner

We’re Ed and Dan, two carpenters who met on a building site in Brisbane back in 2014. In 2015, Dan lost a close mate to suicide and navigating the grief made us realise there was a lack of understanding and support for mental health in our community of fellow blue-collar workers. We wanted to change the landscape of how blue-collar industries perceived mental health. So, in 2020 we launched TIACS, a FREE mental health counselling service for the blue-collar workforce and those who care about them Australia-wide.

We’ve supported over 18,000 individuals with over 19,000 hours of conversation so far, and we’re proud to have given back over $3 million worth of free services to the Australian community. Our legendary community has been instrumental in helping us achieve all of this.

We’re so glad that this year, MPAQ has decided to support the good cause that we do – and hopefully, this can help inspire more awareness and initiative in the plumbing and gas industry to champion conversations on mental health.
