LGBTQIA+ ATTEMPT SURVIVOR ACTION GROUP
Roses in the Ocean is proud to announce the establishment of a new national LGBTQIA+ Attempt Survivor Action Group for people who have a lived experience of suicide attempts.
The group comprises a diverse range of people from across Australia who bring their lived experience of suicide attempts to the forefront of conversations and activities relating specifically to LGBTQIA+ communities and more broadly to all suicide prevention initiatives.
The increased visibility, voices and insights from people who possess the intersectionality of being both a suicide attempt survivor and a member of LGBTQIA+ communities in Australia is very much needed. The insights gained from people with lived experience of suicide attempt will contribute to informing how we can collectively amplify the voices of LGBTQIA+ attempt survivors and contribute these important perspectives to all Roses in the Ocean activity.
Meet the foundation members of the Action Group here and watch a webinar of their first open discussion here.
