NAWIC - MATES In Construction Training Session
Join NAWIC Wellington members for a special MATES In Construction - Mental Health Awareness training event.
The MATES programme builds and strengthens workplace communities and across the industry – helping our people support and provide an environment that encourages positive wellbeing. The impact of this community-based approach then goes beyond the workplace and into our everyday lives.
MATES engage with workers through on-site training and provides those identified as at risk with case management support that connects them to suitable professional support. MATES Field Officers are trained in suicide intervention skills and have experience in the Building and Construction Industry. This allows our Field Officers to engage easily with the workers on-site.
DATE & TIME: Saturday June 17 - 11am start (please arrive early)
VENUE: Etco Training Facility - Level 4, 191 Thorndon Quay
COST: FREE to NAWIC members, this event is limited to 20 people so please book your space consciously. Anyone is welcome to join NAWIC here.
POST EVENT: Nibbles will be served at the venue after the session.
BRING: No PPE required
