For Young People
ARE YOU AN ABORIGINAL AND/OR TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER LGBTQA+ YOUNG PERSON? IF SO, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
As you may have experienced, few services that are supposed to help young people know much about supporting the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ young people (14-25 years).
This research project aims to understand your experiences, mental health, strength and resilience, so that we can help your local mental health and social support services meet your needs. Now is the chance to have your say about what would support your wellbeing.
Walkern Katatdjin is led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ researchers, Aboriginal researchers, and LGBTQA+ researchers. Meet the team!
Who are we looking for?
Anyone who is…
14-25 years old (you do not need a parent/guardian's permission to take part)
Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander AND
LGBTQA+ (you do not have to be ‘out’)
