Mateship matters message shared in outback Queensland in bid to prevent bush suicide


An organisation working to promote men's mental health issues says mateship and solidarity will help men cope when they are under pressure.
 
Mates in Construction has organised a tour of Queensland called 'Mateship Matters', with guest speakers from the United States and Ireland.

The speakers have also visited Sydney, as well as Cairns and Townsville, but this week have headed bush into drought-stricken central western Queensland.

They spoke under the Tree of Knowledge at Barcaldine last night and will today visit the tiny rural communities of Jundah and Stonehenge, south of Longreach, before speaking in Longreach this evening.
