Affirmative Practice: LGBTQI+ People and Forced Displacement
GBKS Interest Group Presents:
Affirmative Practice: LGBTQI+ People and Forced Displacement

LGBTIQ+ people more broadly report much poorer mental health outcomes. For those who have been forcibly displaced those experiences are exacerbated by both the history of complex trauma and challenges in settlement experiences in Australia. despite the need to access mental health support, often LGBTIQ+ forcibly displaced people do not receive this support for a number of reasons.
In this session, the complexity of these experiences will be explored to ensure that mental health practitioners understand both personal circumstances including cultural considerations and structural conditions impact on health.
