Mental Health

Despite increasing acceptance of difference over the last few decades, people who are same-sex attracted (gay, lesbian and bisexual), people who are transgender, and people who are intersex, still face stigma and discrimination resulting from ingrained cultural attitudes about sexuality, gender and sex diversity in Australia.

While many gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) people do not experience depression or any other mental health problem, GLBTI people do experience anxiety and depression at higher rates than  many other people and are at greater risk of suicide and self-harm.
