Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex (LGBTI)
We will work alongside you to develop skills that will enable you to maintain your independence and support you while you navigate your life.
We believe every person has the same human rights irrespective of sexuality, gender identity or intersexuality. Our personalized approach in assisting individuals through service planning recognizes that all people are unique and that personal circumstances change over time.
According to the National LGBTI Health Alliance, LGBTI individuals in Australia are twice as likely to be diagnosed and treated for mental health disorders compared to the general population. A staggering 57.2% of transgender and gender diverse people aged 18 and over have been diagnosed with depression in their lifetime.
“My Support Worker and other Open Minds employees I have found to be completely non-judgemental and totally accepting of who I am. We hangout and talk, and they treat me with respect. They have never tried to change who I am, they’ve only ever encouraged positive change in my life.”
