Construction Sector Accord invites you to their webinar

Improving mental wellness and reducing suicide in the construction industry

About this webinar

We know that the construction sector has a high rate of suicide. As an industry we need to take ownership of what is happening. We need to drive change through a shared vision for better mental health and suicide prevention.

The Construction Sector Accord’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing workstream supports and promotes MATES in Construction’s suicide prevention initiative. We are proud to partner with MATES in Construction to bring you this webinar.

Victoria McArthur, CEO of MATES in Construction, will talk about MATES in Construction’s first year in New Zealand, what was learnt and why the construction sector needs an industry-wide approach to suicide prevention.

Case Manager Gloria Vetekina will discuss how to access services, and touch on research underway to improve the uptake of mental health support.

Industry representatives from Naylor Love, Watercare and Kāinga Ora will talk about work they have implemented working with MATES in Construction.

Field Officers Slade McFarland and Richie Hepi, will provide insights on life on a construction site.
