LGBTQA+ Communities and Mental Health Caring Relationships

LGBTQA+ Communities and Mental Health Caring Relationships Focus Group Consultation Paper to the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System drummond street services | queerspace – supported by tandem carers

queerspace welcomed the opportunity to extend our support to the Royal Commission by holding a focus group in partnership with tandem carers to provide a snapshot on the diversity of experiences of LGBTQA+ people in care relationships. This paper aims to increase understanding about their needs and the impacts of poor mental health on individuals and families. We hope it will prompt exploration on issues not currently addressed by carer or consumer targeted initiatives or services for LGBTQA+ populations.
