Help for LGBTI patients
Here is a useful resource for those GPs who have patients who are struggling with issues related to their sexuality and need more specifically tailored support.
Even though there is much more awareness and openness about different sexual orientations, it is likely GPs will appreciate the support of this free counselling and referral service developed for people who are LGBTI.
QLife is Australia’s first nationally-oriented counselling and referral service for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex (LGBTI).
It provides early intervention, peer-supported telephone and web-based services to people of all ages. People can ring the 1800 number any day between 3pm and midnight or contact the service via webchat.
QLife is funded by the Australian government.
