Grapevine Group has launched our life-saving Help-A-Mate Hubs campaign within the Mackay region with the goal to distribute 20,000 Grapevine Help-a-Mate cards to our local community each year.
We are calling on the public to collect bundles of our free Help-a-Mate cards from collection points called Help-a-Mate Hubs. These vital cards contain a list of the Mackay region’s local suicide prevention resources. We ask you to grab your bundles and further distribute cards on local business counter tops, to staff and to sports and community networks.
When you collect your cards don’t forget to take a picture with the selfie frame and let everyone know on social media you or your organization have Help-a-Mate cards.

We’d love for local events to support local suicide prevention by having a free Help-a-mate Hub onsite to distribute our suicide prevention cards. People attending can take life-saving Help-a-mate cards to hand out to colleagues, friends team mates and volunteers.
Your event can join the life-saving campaign to get a Help-a-mate card in every wallet in the Mackay Region.
We’d like to help you out too, by strongly promoting your event on social media and by letting as many people as possible know of your event. Our Facebook page has over 7000 followers who are predominately in the Mackay Region, so we can definitely help get the word out there.
With community spirit we can work together to make Mackay the most suicide safe region in Australia.

Sponsoring your own Help-a-mate Hub is a major opportunity for your organisation to demonstrate its support of the local community while assisting Grapevine Group to educate the general public on where to find much-needed help.
Help-a-Mate Hubs help fight the stigma that suicide faces in our community. It is often the stigma that discourages people from discussing suicide and suicidal thoughts to their support networks and seeking professional help.Stigma has a major role to play in the loss of lives. With your help we can change that!
It’s not just about you helping us; we would like to give back by promoting your organisation. Each Pop Up Help-a-Mate Hub Event will receive Grapevine’s advertising support. Grapevine will regularly help promote your Help-a-Mate Hub online through our social media and Mackay Noticeboard pages. With over 7000 Facebook followers, primarily within the Mackay region, we can help make your Help-a-mate Hub a success. Your organisation will also be recognised with your logo appearing on your own Selfie Frame. Be sure to send our Facebook page the selfie frame photos of your hub for extra exposure.
