HALT was excited to be able to deliver one of our ‘Save your Bacon’ events at Parliament House in Spring Street, Melbourne on Wednesday the 22nd of February.
It was wonderful to have the whole HALT team there for the event.
Through our local MP, Maree Edwards, who facilitated and organised the event, HALT Founder, Jeremy Forbes, was able to present to around 70 politicians, tradies, maintenance staff and other parliament staff about mental health and suicide prevention.
There were lots of positive and supportive conversations amongst the tradies and politicians after the event and HALT has already organised upcoming meetings with politicians who are keen to support HALT and see it grow across the state, as well as with building and construction industry representatives who were there and who would like HALT to come out to their other sites to talk with their teams.
HALT especially thanks Maree Edwards MP, who has been a long-term supporter of HALT and led the charge to get HALT down to parliament.
