Opening Closets Mental Health Training
Gay and Lesbian Community Services of WA (GLCS) have been funded by the Mental Health Commission to deliver the new Opening Closets Mental Health Training for frontline mental health workers in Perth.
Opening Closets Mental Health Training aims to improve access to mental health services by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people by raising awareness of their specific needs and developing worker capacity to appropriately respond to clients while promoting inclusive practice.
GLCS will also provide support for organisations and staff to develop inclusive policies and practices that best respond to the needs of LGBTI people through policy coaching for mental health services.
The three hour training session will be offered for free to mental health workers in both Government and community managed organisations.
