In response to popular demand MindOut will be running a one day training event on October 6th 2017 at Community Base, Brighton
Responding to the needs of LGBTQ mental health – reviewing good practice.
Research shows that mainstream health services do not meet the specific needs of LGBTQ people. This training course will be an opportunity for representatives from different organisations across the city to come together, review and improve their practice when encountering LGBTQ clients with mental health issues.
Bringing together both theoretical and real life experiences, we will offer participants a unique perspective into understanding how our identities intersect with our mental health.
Participants will gain insight and skills in assessing and addressing the needs of LGBTQ clients/customers with mental health issues and gain confidence in dealing with heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. We will address good practice around monitoring for sexual orientation and gender and participants will go away with action plans around how to make their services more inclusive.
To review understanding of LGBTQ mental health, what’s different and why?
To deepen awareness of trans issues and trans care pathways
To develop affirmative practice interventions
To review information for signposting to LGBTQ specific support
