    Chris Lockwood, National CEO, MATES in Construction, Mining & Energy

Asking R U OK? needs to be every day and, when that conversation gets too big for us to handle alone, we all need to be equipped with the tools and knowledge to get to that next level of support.

At the end of this session you will be better informed how to have those difficult conversations as well as how to navigate the numerous support avenues available to us in Australia.
