The National LGBTI Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Strategy is a strategic action plan that recommends a number of approaches for mental health workers that focuses on five areas; promotion, prevention, intervention, treatment and maintenance. The plan is designed to respond to LGBTI people in need, intervene with those who are at risk of self harm and impede structures that contribute to the overrepresentation of queer people in mental health and suicide statistics. The plan’s goals are to improve opportunities for inclusive and accessible care, establish more evidence on LGBTI populations, recognise diversity within the community, help provide a skilled workforce in the mental health sector and provide more promotion and prevention programs.
