MPAQ Events Charity
The 2022 MPAQ Events Charity is:
MATES in Construction was established in 2008 in response to a major report on suicide (the ‘AISRAP Report’) within the Queensland Commercial Building and Construction Industry. This report found that suicide rates in the industry were higher than the Australian average for men, and that youth suicide within the industry could be as much as 2.38 times more common than among other young Australian men.
MATES provides suicide prevention through community development programs on sites, and by supporting workers in need through case management and a 24/7 help line.
