headspace Bendigo is also still accepting online referrals through the headspace Bendigo webpage and seeing young people for sessions over the phone or via video link.
headspace Bendigo is a HEY Project partner which is a Victorian Government funded initiative with the aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ Young people.
headspace has a dedicated LGBTIQ+ diversity Worker who runs activities and events, educating and raising awareness in the community, at schools and other agencies/organisations in Bendigo.
The LBGTIQ+ diversity Worker also facilitates two support groups for LGBTIQ+ young people. These groups are an opportunity for young people who are gender diverse to meet new people, socialise and build positive relationships. The groups are held in a safe, supportive, inclusive and positive environment where young people can celebrate their diversity.
We also run a parent support group for parents of gender diverse young people that is held once a month on a Monday night from 7-8.30. It is an opportunity for parents/grandparents to meet and share knowledge/information in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. We also have guest speakers who attend and are knowledgeable on gender diversity from their own personal journey or on a professional level.
