Over the course of the month of August, also known as Tradie Health Month, there is a strong focus on not just tradies’ physically health and wellbeing, but mental health as well.

MATES in Construction has announced a Charity Lunch to be held in October in Queensland to raise funds for workers’ mental health.

The event will be attended by around 400 construction industry representatives from small and large organisations, government and other stakeholders.

The annual event also celebrates industry acheivements through the MATES program which aims to tackle the problem of construction worker suicide by teaching workers how to talk to their mates who may be suffering from depression before they resort to suicide.
