MindOUT Webinar - An Introduction to the LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy

This webinar describes, explores and discusses the details of the content of the 2016 National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy that was developed for an Australian context to systematically address the dramatic over-representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex people in measures of suicidality and mental ill-health.

This Strategy calls for nationally coordinated, evidence-based action to help prevent suicide by supporting organisations and government to develop effective suicide prevention initiatives that acknowledge and affirm the wide variety of bodies, genders, relationships, and sexualities that comprise the Australian population.

Presenters

National LGBTI Health Alliance staff, Sally Morris, National MindOUT Project Coordinator, and Ross Jacobs, National Coordinator – Clinical Practice and Development, led on the development of the National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy.
