Out of Our Minds

When 14 Oct, 2017 10:00am — 3:00pm Where 8 Laidlaw Place, Kambah Website http://www.facebook.com/events/179950509200987/
Diversity ACT welcomes LGBTIQ+ people, their families and allies to “Out of Our Minds”- a Mental Health Week event exploring LGBTIQ+ mental health issues and journeys. The event will be held at the Diversity Hub, 8 Laidlaw Place Kambah on 14 October 2017, running from 10am til 3pm.

Out of Our Minds is an exploration of mental health for LGBTIQ+ people, their friends and family. The event includes book readings, guest speakers, artistic performances, retail therapy, and opportunities for sharing a meal and spending time in the park. Given the heavy impact of the campaign around the non-binding postal survey on the mental health of LGBTIQ+ people and their families, Diversity ACT encourages all interested Canberrans to take the time to come along, learn a little more about LGBTIQ+ mental health issues and journeys, and have some fun in the park as well.

Diversity ACT is pleased to announce that the ACT Minister for Mental Health, the Honourable Shane Rattenbury MLA, will be in attendance.

Guest speakers include representatives from LGBTIQ+ support groups such as Rainbow Christian Alliance and Trans Australia. Performances from Phoenix Flow Arts, MadB and Canberra’s own Gay and Lesbian Qwire will be sure to entertain. Market stalls are also available.
