The Essential Role of

Sexuality and Gender (LGBTIQPA+) Psychologists

Counselling and psychology support for sexuality and gender identity plays an essential role in supporting those struggling with gender or sexual identity. Whilst the disproportionate representation of the LGBTIQPA+, trans, and non-binary community in Australia’s mental health and suicide statistics is sometimes referenced, the numbers paint a deeply concerning picture.

The most recent data from Suicide Prevention Australia highlights the disproportionate representation of the LGBTIQPA+ community. The study found that 41.9% of LGBTIQPA+ people surveyed had considered suicide in the last 12-months, with 78.4% considering suicide at some point in their lives.

The statistics for Australia’s trans and non-binary community paint a similarly bleak picture. According to a 2022 study, 92% of trans and non-binary youth have reported experiencing suicidal thoughts at some time in their lives. Additionally, 86% have self-harmed, and between 35% to 48% have attempted suicide.

With the right support and guidance, the Centre for Human Potential psychology support team aims to play a meaningful role in providing tailored mental health support for our LGBTIQPA+ community, emphasising the distinct needs of each individual.

We acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia and we pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.

We are also a safe space for all clients including LGBTIQSGBB, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and CALD persons.

Our team of sexuality, gender, LGBTIQPA+ psychologists in Brisbane are committed to creating an environment that fosters acceptance and understanding through guidance, validation, or simply an outlet to be heard. Our empathetic and supportive team of psychologists are equipped to support your unique journey and needs.
