LGBTIQ mental health and the promise of reform


On 8 June 2021 Mental Health Victoria will join with Rainbow Health Victoria and Thorne Harbour Health for a free webinar exploring mental health in the LGBTIQ community.

The webinar will dig into the LGBTIQ related recommendations from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System and recent announcements in the latest Victorian state budget.

"With the process of reform only just beginning, this event is a valuable opportunity to hear from sector leaders to explore a common vision of what a well-resourced and integrated LGBTIQ inclusive mental health system looks like," said organisers.

This event will spotlight the need for a combination of LGBTIQ community-led services, safe and inclusive mainstream service pathways, and what a “no wrong door” system looks like in practice.

Speakers will include:

  • Larissa Taylor – Mental Health Victoria
  • Marina Carman – Rainbow Health Victoria
  • Carolyn Gillespie – Thorne Harbour Health
  • Joe Ball – Rainbow Door and Switchboard
  • Kent Burgess – Your Community Health
  • Sara Strachan – Zoe Belle Gender Collective
  • Isabelle McGovern – Mind Australia
