National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy
A new strategy for inclusion and action.
LGBTI Australians are more likely to attempt suicide and to harm themselves than the general population. They are also more likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder. Transgender people aged 18 and over are nearly 11 times more likely to attempt suicide than the general population, and intersex people aged 16 and over are nearly six times more likely. Young LGBTI people – those aged between 16 and 17 – are five times more likely. Now, the peak body for LGBTI health in Australia, the National LGBTI Health Alliance, has created a National LGBTI Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Strategy – the first of its kind in Australia, and a global rarity too.
