Mates in Construction

Clearwater Construction is proud to be a Partner of MATES In Construction which has the objectives of:-

  • Delivering an on-site programme to provide the skills to help workers start the discussions with someone that may be struggling on-site or even in their community

  • Encouraging people to understand the signals and to do something, rather than do nothing, and grasp the idea that suicide is everyone’s business

  • Providing long-term support to people who need it, establishing a peer-based support programme in the workplace encouraging workers to offer help ‘when a mate is doing it tough.’ The MATES team includes Field Officers and Case Managers who deliver the programme and are available as much as is needed on-site and on occasions such as post-ventions, critical incidents or people struggling at various levels.
