Course objectives

  • Identify your role in keeping LGBTQ+ young people safe, and free from stigma and discrimination

  • Consider how the intersections of LGBTQ+ identity, race and disability can affect risk and protective factors for positive mental health
  • Explore the importance of relationships and what LGBTQ+ young people say works in helping to support their mental health and build their resilience

 

I really enjoyed the course and felt the layout was informative and accessible. This course helped further my understanding of LGBTQIA mental health and what these students face at school. The facts were really useful, as were model answers and resources that I can take to the rest of my staff when covering this content further.

I really enjoyed doing the course and will definitely recommend it to my colleagues and friends.

 

It was really helpful for me to gain some insight into the mental health issues of LGBT community, also to understand the terminology used and how important this is in identity for young people as well as acceptance. I think that as a school we could incorporate some of these strategies towards being a more LGBT friendly school community.
