Indigenous LGBQTI Inclusive Practices in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention - 1 Day Workshop

 

Overview

Both Indigenous and LGBQTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender and intersex) people experience additional societal challenges which contribute to the increased development of depression, anxiety, and alcohol and other drug problems, as well as many more of life’s difficulties and challenges. In their help seeking efforts, services that are not inclusive in their practice can create extra obstacles, affecting service delivery and restricting optimal health outcomes for Indigenous LGBQTI people.

By attending the Indigenous LGBQTI Inclusive Practices in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Workshop participants will increase their knowledge of the heightened suicide risk for Indigenous LGBQTI people and are assisted in identifying the inherent health risks at the intersection of the dual experiences of being both Indigenous and LGBQTI identifying. This includes the social determinants of health specific to Indigenous and LGBQTI people. The Indigenous LGBQTI Inclusive Practices in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Workshop increases participants knowledge and literacy of the needs of Indigenous LGBQTI people and helps identify specific micro aggressions; what they are and look at how they operate and affect people’s experience in our health systems. The workshop also provides practical examples of how to strengthen and enhance service delivery as well as demonstrate how organisational and individual attitudes and values impact on the people we work with (clients) and alongside (colleagues).
