Description

The Collective Purpose partners, Being, WayAhead and Mental Health Carers NSW are pleased to present the first speaker series event for 2018 – After the marriage equality postal survey – what now for LGBTIQ mental health.

Throughout 2017, the LGBTIQ community had to endure public discussions about their lives and the value the community placed on their relationships. Many people from the LGBTIQ reported feeling anxious, distressed because of the postal survey and for some it made them re-live trauma from their past.

The mental health and wellness needs of the LGBTIQ community has not ended now that Australia has achieved marriage equality. This public event will discuss what needs to be done to best support the mental health and wellness of NSW’s LGBTIQ community.

Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm
Location: Collective Purpose, Level 5, 80 William Street, Woolloomooloo
