Karise Eden, performer and MATES Supporter, talks of her personal experience with MATES and why she wrote the song 'My Old Friend'. Karise resonated with audiences not only because of her incredible voice, but her down-to earth personality and resilience born from a tough childhood that saw her out on her own in her early teens.
Having come out the other side, stronger than ever, Karise wants to support MATES to help others who might be going through a tough time.

Karise understands our industry, firsthand – MATES supporting MATES - and will help share the charity's suicide prevention message, so workers don’t feel alone when they’re struggling with life, are experiencing poor mental health and to give hope to those who have lost someone they care about - like she has.

“I’m excited to announce that I’m supporting ‘MATES in Construction’, a suicide prevention charity aimed at reducing the high rates of suicide among mining, energy and construction workers,” she said.

“I lost one of the most important people in my life a few years ago. A wound that doesn’t seem to ever heal.
