Indigenous suicide prevention service provider Indigenist is set to fund, develop and deliver a program specifically for Indigenous LGBTQIA+ youth.

The LGBTIQ+ Suicide Prevention Awareness Training for Youth Program will be codesigned with Indigenous LGBTIQ+ young people, their families and services to explore issues of dual identity, self-harm and suicide, and increase awareness of those LGBTQIA+ youths’ needs and experiences.

The program also aims to create safe spaces at local football clubs, train local community members on how to talk to young people about wellbeing, address stigma around mental health, and promote positive wellbeing strategies.
