Improving mental health and wellbeing in the Australian Construction industry.


MATES in Construction Aust Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation working towards reducing suicide and improving mental health and wellbeing in the Australian Construction industry.

This service is so critical in the construction industry as every year 190 Australians working in the construction industry take their own lives. BrandMatters has worked with MIC since 2016, working across a number of projects, including the development of their positioning within the market place and the tracking of their advertising campaigns over the years. Their most recent campaign, in May 2019, was aimed at increasing awareness of the brand in regional Queensland, especially with those working outside of the large corporates.
