For Services and Community

There is very little locally-specific information and guidance available for services that work with young people on how best to support someone who is both Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Asexual or other (LGBTQA+). This means that young people (14-25 years) who are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and LGBTQA+ may not receive the same level of health care as other members of the community.

Young people who are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and LGBTQA+ may be at increased risk of poor social emotional wellbeing and increased mental health difficulties, although there is very little research currently.

We want to work with local health services to develop interventions that Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ young people say will support them.

If you’re interested in getting involved, so that your service can learn how to support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ young people’s mental health and wellbeing in appropriate and effective ways, please get in contact with us at:
