LGBTIQA+ inclusion training for crisis and suicide prevention organisations

We’re growing the pool of LGBTIQA+ inclusive and safe suicide prevention services in South Australia

Thanks to generous funding from Wellbeing SA, SARAA and SHINE SA partnered in 2022 to provide free LGBTIQA+ inclusivity training to South Australian crisis and suicide prevention services.

LGBTIQA+ South Australians have experienced a long history of homophobia, transphobia, discrimination and abuse which result in significantly poorer mental health outcomes. Recent research shows 75% of LGBTQA+ people have experienced suicidal ideation in their lifetime, more than five times that of the general population.

We took action on this important issue by supporting organisations like Psychmed, Anglicare and Uniting Country SA to complete SHINE SA’s HOW2 Create LGBTI Inclusive Services program.

By doing so, we increased the pool of LGBTIQA+ inclusive mental health services that LGBTIQA+ South Australians at risk of suicide can rely on.

This program is now closed. You can check out SHINE SA’s HOW2 Create LGBTI Inclusive Services program online.
