SAVE A MATE.
founded in 2009 by Samuel Thompson, SAVE A MATE is dedicated to creating mate-ship within communities.
our focus is on communities embracing each other through mateship.
SAVE A MATE has a unique approach to suicide prevention.
In 2009 Samuel and his good friend Adam Cook embarked on a 50cc scooter ride from Gladstone QLD to Mallacoota VIC.
At the time Samuel was a 19 year old young man with no intentions of creating an organisation. More so , just wanting to see a change to suicide statistics. During the ride tho, something became apparent to Samuel. That was nearly everyone who attended the talks had been touched in someway by suicide, and that it needed to be adressed.
So here we are! not as a young man on a mission but as SAVE A MATE an organisation dedicated to suicide prevention and mental health.
