Read The Signs
Read The Signs is a join initiative between Lifeline Australia and MTAA Super. This program is aimed at promoting suicide prevention among MTAA Super members. Launched in September 2004, Read The Signs was a result of the concern at the numbers of suicide deaths in Australia. Statistics indicate that suicides account for 25% of all deaths amongst young male Australians between the ages of 15 and 24.
MTAA Super partners with two main organisations.
V8 Supercar Series
The V8 Supercar Series is an international car racing event. The importance of this event in the Australia motoring industry was recognised by MTAA Super.
Lifeline Australia is a non-profit organisation delivering a range of counselling and support services addressing social issues. In partnership with Lifeline Australia, MTAA Super launched the Read The Signs initiative in 2004.
