    Evidence shows that overall, LGBTIQ+ young people experience higher rates of mental ill-health, suicidal thoughts and behaviour, as compared with their heterosexual and cisgender peers. These experiences are compounded by poor access to and engagement with services, and services which are often poorly equipped to cater to their specific needs. 

    We will be joined by lead investigator, Penelope Strauss, Research Fellow in Youth Suicide Prevention at the Telethon Kids Institute to discuss the latest updates in the implementation of their Suicide prevention guidelines for LGBTQA+ young people

    These guidelines outline best practice for suicide prevention in LGBTQA+ young people, targeting both clinical and community service providers. Implementation of these guidelines in service settings throughout Australia has the potential to improve the care received by LGBTQA+ young people who are experiencing suicidal ideation and/or engaging in suicidal behaviours.
