Nominate your organisation or one you know is doing great work for LGBTIQ+ communities for the Mental Health Matters Rainbow Inclusion Award.
ACON is proud to be sponsoring the first Mental Health Matters Award Rainbow Inclusion Award – Recognising mental health related programs, projects or initiatives that demonstrate commitment to the mental health and wellbeing of sex, sexuality, and/or gender diverse (LGBTIQ+) people.
We know that LGBTIQ+ communities experience mental health disparities at higher rates than the general population. It is important that LGBTIQ+ people have access to inclusive, non-judgemental and responsive support services. Help us to recognise a service or organisation doing great work for LGBTIQ+ communities in improving mental health and wellbeing.
Each year in October the Mental Health Matters Awards ceremony celebrates outstanding achievements in mental health in NSW. Held at Sydney’s Shangri-La Hotel, it is a wonderful opportunity to meet others and celebrate the work of individuals, groups and organisations that make a difference.
The winner of each award category will receive $1000, an engraved award plaquette and a specially created promotional video.
Nominations for the Mental Health Matters Awards will close 5pm, Friday 7th June 2019
