Current Evidence For Good Practice In Suicide Prevention For LGBTIQ+ People

This report provides an overview of evidence from 2010 to 2020 for good practice in suicide prevention for LGBTIQ people. It largely focuses on peer-reviewed literature from 2018 onwards.

There are significant knowledge gaps in evidence on suicide prevention for LGBTIQ populations. A literature review was conducted to examine the most recent evidence from Australia, which is limited, as
well as global research studies in order to strengthen the evidence base. This report provides an overview of evidence from 2010 to 2020 for good practice in suicide prevention for LGBTIQ people. It largely
focuses on peer-reviewed literature from 2018 onwards, following on from the LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and Suicide Prevention Australia’s Synthesis (Ono, 2018).

LGBTIQ+ Health Australia Snapshot (2020) contains comparisons between Australian LGBTIQ populations and the general population, whilst acknowledging that there is a lack of uniformity between demographic information and definitions in mental health literature and therefore direct comparisons are not well supported.
