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.
