Pathways to Inclusion

This paper provides a framework for providers of mainstream mental health and suicide prevention organisations to better recognise, understand and meet the specific needs of LGBTI people.

This framework is designed to be used by mainstream mental health services in Australia, both government and non-government, covering counselling, support, mental health and suicide prevention services, as well as government and private residential mental health services. The framework has been developed as part of the National LGBTI Health Alliance’s MindOUT! Project. The overall aim of the Project is to build the capacity of both mainstream and LGBTI organisations to respond to the specific mental health, suicide and self harm prevention needs of LGBTI people.
