QLife Guides

 

 

 

 

At QLife, we hear and share in the stories and experiences of LGBTI people every day of the year. We also speak frequently with professionals in medical, mental health and educational settings who are looking for information about how to work best with LGBTI individuals that they work with either from time to time or daily.

 

We’ve put together a series of documents, the QLife Guides, focused on some frequently asked topics about working with LGBTI people. The Guides use plain language around some complex topic areas, to help people feel able to work constructively with all kinds of clients on LGBTI matters. While there will always be a place and need of specialist services,like QLife, our philosophy is that LGBTI people are entitled to care wherever they are.

 

Over the coming weeks, the full range of QLife Guides will be available. For more information, please contact us at ask@qlife.org.au
