Empowering connections and promoting conversations around mental wellness

How Can Fraser Coast Mates Help?

Fraser Coast Mates is a local organisation that aims to spread awareness of mental wellness with the goal of preventing suicide in both men and women across the Fraser Coast community.

We are also passionate about building a community of mates that look out for each other and know that we all need a helping hand from time to time.


Fraser Coast Mates hosts a range of events across the Fraser Coast region, along with providing resources such as the Little Black Book and free counselling sessions to those in need.


Whether you are someone who is needing urgent help, are just wanting to be better educated around mental wellbeing or are worried about a mate or loved one - we're here for you.

Who is Fraser Coast Mates?

Fraser Coast Mates was formed in 2018 by a group of local business people who were concerned by the rise of debilitating mental health issues and rising suicide rates across our region.


We are a local organisation on the Fraser Coast that aims to build local awareness and grow conversations about mental wellbeing by bridging the gap between those suffering and the local support services available and ultimately making progress for suicide prevention.


Our number one goal is to encourage mates to be better equipped to help their mates and colleagues in times of struggle by telling local stories, helping mates gain clarity around what services are available locally and coordinating community events.
