MATES is relevant - everyone knows someone affected by suicide The majority of us know people who have been directly affected by suicide. The MATES breakthrough structure of support/empower provides contact at the point of crisis (MATES Cafe 1/1 Crisis Support) followed by our Emotional Reset Technique programme which empowers people to deal with the root cause of suicide which is their emotional triggers.
MATES directly addresses mental health concerns which lead to addictions, isolation and suicide 1 in 5 people are affected by a mental health concern such as depression or anxiety which can lead to undesirable outcomes including addictions and suicide. Unresolved emotional triggers lead to a cycle of negative thoughts which trigger further unwanted emotions. One person every 40 seconds takes their own life with 75% of suicides being male.
MATES helps to restore broken relationships In many cases, anxiety, depression and suicide are caused by relationship breakdown which can be the result of family violence caused by emotional triggers getting out of control. Relationship breakups also lead to social isolation and poverty. With a staggering 40% of relationships ending within 3 years, the poverty rate for solo parent families is 62% versus 15% in two-parent families.
