World Suicide Prevention Day - 10 September - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

World Suicide Prevention Day - 10 September

10 September marks World Suicide Prevention Day across the globe and provides a unique opportunity to shine a light on suicide prevention and help save lives.

LGBTIQ+ people still experience a higher risk of suicidal behaviours than non-LGBTIQ+ people. This can be attributed to the impact of minority stress - the chronic stressors that LGBTI people are uniquely exposed to, including discrimination, social exclusion, harassment and physical violence.
