Online via Zoom
Join the latest webinar in our Advocates & Allies series as we hear about how service culture can help LGBTIQ+ people take control of their mental health and how it can support better outcomes for them and their communities. Become more aware of LGBTIQ+ experience in some services and the difficulties people have when services do not pay attention to their perspectives and particular needs.
Thursday 24 March 2022
2:00pm to 3:15pm
Hear from Chris Keyes at Central & Eastern Sydney PHN and Genevieve Whitlam at ACON about their work, collaboration and the particular programs directed towards supporting the needs of LGBTIQ+ people dealing with mental health and Alcohol and Other Drugs issues.
Information about services and resources and the partnership project developing LGBTIQ+ Practice Guidelines with input from MHCC (shortly to be launched) will also be provided.
Georgie Hartigan, Mental Health Peer Worker at ACON will also talk about her role as a peer specialist and the relatively new experience of peer integration into a clinical service delivery context.
