National LGBTI Health Alliance NT roundtable

The team from the National LGBTI Health Alliance came to Darwin to talk about the National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy. This strategy has been developed to systematically address the dramatic over-representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex people in measures of suicidality and mental ill-health.

This strategy offers a broad and practical framework that will support nation-wide efforts to reduce the high incidence of suicide, suicidality, and mental illness amongst LGBTI people.

Attendees at the forum included: Top End Health, the NT Department of Health, NTAHC, Rainbow Territory, Dr Stephen Kerry, PHN NT (Primary Health Network NT), the Mental Health Coalition NT, and others.
