Understanding Suicide Among Trans and Gender Diverse People – new factsheet

U

MindOut: Mental Health & Suicide Prevention / LGBTIQ+ Health Australia,  31st March, 2022

Many transgender and gender diverse people live happy and healthy lives; however, some also experience a higher burden of poor mental health and rates of suicidality than the general population.

This factsheet has been created with information taken from LGBTIQ+ Health Australia’s¬†National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy, which was developed in response to the need for urgent action on mental health and suicide prevention for LGBTIQ+ communities. The work has been undertaken in the context of significant national policy development, including the Productivity Commission inquiry and the work of the Prime Minister’s National Suicide Prevention Advisor.
