Expressions of Interest: LGBTIQ+ Champions eModule

Expressions of Interest are now closed - thank you for your interest and stay tuned to find out more. If you have applied, someone from MindOut will be in contact soon, even if your application was unsuccessful.

MindOut Australia is redesigning it’s LGBTIQ+ Mental Health & Suicide Prevention eModule with lived experience voices at the centre of it!

This eModule will be delivered to service providers working in mental health including (doctors, psychologists, helpline operators etc.). It is designed to be a basic guide for better, more inclusive mental health and suicide prevention service delivery. It will also offer an up to date summary of current data trends and research.

We are looking for LGBTIQ+ community members who have had experiences with poor mental health, or have been a carer for someone with poor mental health. We are also interested in LGBTIQ+ community members who would like to talk to us about issues of suicide, whether it relates to you or someone you have supported.

Overview

Successful applicants will be required to send a short 10-15 minute video, shot on their camera, answering some questions related to their experiences. These questions will be sent to you beforehand and you will have an opportunity discuss them with the project officer.

What’s in it for you?

  • $200 remuneration 
  • Opportunity to have your voice heard and promoted on a National level! 
  • Interested parties may also be contacted to join our peer expert advisory committee or go on the list for future campaigns related to mental health for LGBTIQ+ people.

Proposed Process 

  • Expressions of Interest sought from the community and within LHA.
  • The project team selection process will be primarily based on capturing a diverse cross -section of the community.
  • The project team will contact and invite those selected to participate during the 13th – 17th of December. 
  • You will be asked to sign a release form, detailing that your story will only be used for this eModule. You have the right to contact LHA at any time and remove your permission for your story to be used.
  • Due to the volume and selection process it may not be possible to reply to all submissions before the 17th – however we will contact you before the end of the year even if your application was unsuccessful.

We recognise that people have a range of access needs. You are welcome to contact the project team to discuss your interest and alternative ways of applying including over the phone, audio message and video.
