You Are Not Alone - MATES Cafe is Worldwide MATES Cafe is a network of everyday people of all ages, cultures and ethnicity who are trained to meet with a person in crisis or isolation at a local cafe, and provide emotional support and encouragement.
MATES relies on your support. Please consider helping us with your time, expertise or financial contribution. MATES has been saving lives and relationships for over 15 years inspired by the great support from our community and encouragement to keep going. We are not reliant on government funding, nor should we be, as to make real change in our community and be truly self-sustainable is for us to work together and empower one another in being the change. MATES Initiatives established in 2003 provide a real answer to empowering your life and to help our communities lower the horrific rates of suicide, depression and relationship violence and create positive role-models for our community and our children.
