MATES in Construction Kokoda Trek 2014

Mates in Construction Kokoda

The inaugural MATES In Kokoda Trek is a joint venture by CSQ, Mates in Construction (MIC), Cribhut and Aurora Adventures to both support and raise awareness for suicide prevention within the construction industry.

Construction workers are six times more likely to die by suicide than through a workplace accident and apprentices in construction are two and a half times more likely to suicide than other young men their age.

The unique solution developed by MIC is to train a number of construction workers (known as connectors) to recognise potentially suicidal behavior and to give them the simple skills needed to intervene and to keep that person safe until they can gain professional help.

The MIC service is provided at no cost to workers or construction companies, is a registered charity and relies on industry, government and personal donations for funding, field staff employment and the cost of the 24/7 Helpline and counseling support.

MIC Kokoda Trek Charity Lunch
On Friday the 2nd May 2014 the MIC Kokoda Trek Charity Lunch is being held at Rydges Hotel, to raise funds for Mates In Construction, promote the trek and encourage people and companies to sign up to participate! Tickets are $145 individually and a table of 10 is $1400. To book tickets click here.

The MIC Kokoda Trek 2014
