This factsheet has been created with information taken from LGBTIQ+ Health Australia's National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy, which was developed in response to the need for urgent action on mental health and suicide prevention for LGBTIQ+ communities. The work has been undertaken in the context of significant national policy development, including the Productivity Commission inquiry and the work of the Prime Minister's National Suicide Prevention Advisor.
