Join us this Mental Health Awareness Week for a workshop on how to ensure your mental health work is inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.
We know that LGBTQ+ people experience disproportionately poor mental health outcomes. This is compounded by inclusive support being patchily available to the community. In this workshop we'll explore the experiences of LGBTQ+ people and discuss practical ways that you can ensure the support and information provided by your workplace is both inclusive of LGBTQ+ people and specific to their needs.
Join us on Monday 10 October from 10:30 - 12:30 for a 2-hour interactive workshop.
