We are excited to invite you to the launch of Australia's largest ever study on the health and wellbeing of LGBTQA+ young people aged 14-21, Writing Themselves In 4.
The national report contains vital information about the health and wellbeing of more than 6,000 LGBTQA+ young people, as well as findings relating to their experiences at school, homelessness, community connection and a range of other issues. The data will help to inform all those working to improve the lives of LGBTQA+ young people in Australia.
This research has been supported by the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet, the Australian Capital Territory Government Office for LGBTIQ+ Affairs, the New South Wales Department of Health and SHINE SA, with support from the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist in South Australia. It was conducted by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University with the support of Rainbow Health Victoria and Rainbow Network.
Please join us on Wednesday February 3 from 2-3:30pm as we launch the National report. The event will include a range of speakers as well as a discussion panel of young people and community leaders.
The launch will be conducted over Zoom webinar. Registrations are essential.
