Description

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

Both Indigenous and LGBQTI 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).

Launching in 2017, the Indigenous LGBQTI Inclusive Practices in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention - 1 Day Workshop has been delivered to over over 150 frontline workers in health, mental health and suicide prevention.

Feedback examples from participants:

“No 1. priority will be putting systems in place to engage more with the Indigenous LGBQTI community.”
“Open conversations with the groups as well as having more understanding of LGBQTI Indigenous communities. “
“I very much appreciated the combination of lived experience and strong theoretical knowledge. It was powerful !”
“I have had my eyes open to areas of inclusive practice that I hadn’t considered previously so it was great learning experience. Thank you.”
“How to be able to make change as an individual in an organisation and environment that is sustainable.”

This is a full day event.
