FRASER COAST MATES has been formed by a group of local business people concerned by the rise of debilitating mental health issues and rising suicide rates, especially in men across the region. The group aims to build local awareness and conversations about mental health issues, bridge the gap between support services and ultimately make progress for suicide prevention. Our goal is to encourage mates to be better equipped to help their friends and colleagues in times of need.

Fraser Coast Mates has partnered with the Fraser Coast Regional Council to create The Little Black Book. Sometimes you might be feeling stressed, anxious or angry, or just need to talk to someone. But sometimes you’re not really sure what to do or where to start. To help you on the path to good health, we’ve created the Little Black Book. The Little Black Book is a directory of services, contacts, support groups and aims to empower men to reach their potential and enjoy a long and high quality life. A healthy man, in body and mind, means healthy relationships, healthy families and healthy communities.
