In 2017 the National LGBTI Health Alliance released the National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy, a national plan for coordinated action and strategic response to prevent mental ill-health and suicide, and promote mental health and wellbeing for LGBTI populations.
After its release, MindOUT facilitated a series of roundtables around Australia. At these we heard that for the strategy to be useful the strategic goals and actions need to be broken down into achievable activities and tasks that can be delivered.
To do this, we are in the process of developing an action plan that will implement the National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy.
To begin this process we have been working closely with Tekwabi Giz and an external consultant to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTI, Sistergirl and Brotherboy people and communities in this work.
Shortly we will be conducting a series of face to face and online consultations on the draft Implementation Action Plan.
