After hearing of countless Ballarat tradesmen and women being crippled by depression, anxiety and some even turning to suicide, the Master Builders Association of Ballarat knew it was time to take action.
They are holding a HALT Save Your Bacon Breakfast tradies breakfast aimed at providing every tradesperson present with information on mental health and where to get help if it is needed.
HALT, which stands for Hope, Assistance, Local Tradies, was founded in 2013 and aims to get tradies talking about mental health and suicide.
MBAB committee member Stuart Allen said the event comes off the back of another highly successful breakfast in August. The event will be held on Tuesday, November 15, at the G. Gay Mitre, 10 Howitt Street from 7.30am to 10am.
