LGBTIQA+ Wellbeing Workshops

In partnership with The Y and Connection and Wellbeing Australia, WAAC and Freedom Centre run wellbeing workshops throughout the year for LGBTIQA+ young people around WA. The wellbeing workshops focus on peer support and mental health for LGBTIQA+ young people.

Wellbeing workshops are two days of activities, great food and more! They are a  fantastic chance to learn about supporting your mental health and wellbeing and that of your LGBTIQA+ friends, meet other young LGBTIQA+ people, and spend time together in a safe space supported by qualified staff.

Weekend workshops are not only a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and have fun, but you’ll walk out with new skills and knowledge around mental health. You’ll also know how to access LGBTQIA+ friendly services in your area. You will get to participate in the safeTALK suicide alertness training and receive a certificate (it’ll look great on your resume!)
