MindOUT Webinar - Reflections from the Brisbane North PHN LGBTI Suicide Prevention Trial

This webinar provides an overview of the work of the Brisbane North Primary Health Network (PHN) has been undertaking in the delivery of the National Suicide Prevention Trial.

 With 12 sites nationally, the National Suicide Prevention Trials are part of a regional approach to suicide prevention in Australia funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health. Brisbane North PHN is one of only two trial sites that are focusing on LGBTIQ+ people as a priority population.  Adopting the Black Dog Institute’s LifeSpan Framework, this work has utilised a community driven collaborative co-design process with LGBTI people and communities who are central to this work. 

Ged Farmer is the Suicide Prevention Officer from the Brisbane North Primary Health Network working on the National Suicide Prevention Trial with the identified priority groups, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTIQ+, and Young to Middle Aged Men. Ged has been working in the health arena for around 20 years and has a background in Community Development, Health Promotion and Mental Health. Ged has extensive experience working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and LGBTIQ+ communities embedding health promotion and community development philosophies. Ged has developed and delivered LGBTIQ+ training and has delivered system reform across the Brisbane North PiR Consortium creating the inclusion of gender, sex and sexuality in data capturing.
