MATES is a charity established in 2019 to reduce the high level of suicide among New Zealand construction workers. MATES provides suicide prevention through community development programmes on sites, and by supporting workers in need through Case Management and a 24/7 helpline.

The programme raises awareness and builds resilience in the construction industry by promoting help seeking and help offering behaviours, we are building the capacity for workers to support and look after each other

The impact of this community-based approach then goes beyond the workplace and into our every-day lives.

MATES engage with workers through on-site training and providing those identified as at risk with case management support that connects them to suitable professional support. MATES Field Officers are trained in suicide intervention skills and have experience with the Building and Construction Industry. This allows them to engage easily with the workers on site.
