Established in 2013, the MindOut Champions project is a free source of professional development for all people working in the mental health or community service sector within Australia.
Funded by the Department of Health, Champion’s is a collaborative project between MindOut and wider organisations. In return for a commitment towards meaningful inclusion practices for LGBTIQ+ people, Champions allows individual advocates to access resources and support to become champions for LGBTIQ+ inclusion within and outside of their organisations.
Champions of our partner organisations have access to online and face-to-face training as well as monthly facilitated reflective practice sessions with other peers across Australia. Champions will also be called upon to evaluate MindOut projects, co-design the LGBTIQ+ Inclusion Action Plan and occasionally be supported to speak at events or conferences on behalf of the project.
For organisations who want to ensure they are meeting the needs of LGBTIQ+ people within their community this is a great first step to doing so! Click the button below to register for the Champions project today:
