Rainbow Mental Health Resource

Our fantastic 2019 resource, Supporting Aotearoa’s Rainbow People, is a practical guide for mental health professionals who are working with transgender or other Rainbow patients, or who simply want to upskill and understand with sensitivity some of the barriers for rainbow people in accessing mental health services.

Written by Gloria Fraser, with co-design from Gender Minorities Aotearoa, InsideOUT, and RainbowYOUTH, the resource follows on from our research into the experiences of LGBTQI+ people in Aotearoa New Zealand, who have accessed or attempted to access mental health support services. It is available in te reo Maori, mandarin Chinese, and English, and can be downloaded here.
