World Suicide Prevention Day
September 10, 2015
Today, September 10, more than 250 sites nationwide are Flying the Flag for MATES in Construction as part of World Suicide Prevention Day. This means that up to 25,000 construction workers will pause and reflect on the great work being done by MATES in Construction, pledging to look out for each other and raising funds for this great organisation’s work.
Perkins Builders were proud to Fly The Flag for MIC and help raise money for this great cause in both Perth and the South West.
The construction industry has very high suicide rates. Unfortunately we lose a colleague every two days to suicide but we can change it, and we are! Suicide rates in our industry are now falling due to the work being done by MIC and companies, like Perkins who are actively supporting and participating in their programmes.
