Members of the GLTBIQ+ community face increased susceptibility to a range of mental health problems. This workshop will explain why this community experiences this heightened vulnerability, particularly in relation to the increased prevalence of anxiety, depression, suicide planning and substance use.

The workshop will cover the risk factors within the GLBTIQ+ community that contribute to such vulnerability, including abuse, bullying and minority stress. Building on these, the workshop will provide a range of treatment interventions and techniques that practitioners can use when working with this population. These will include working to modify faulty self-talk, distorted cognitions and unhelpful behaviours. Key topics will include:
•    Increased mental health vulnerability in the GLTBIQ+ population.
•    Mental health risk factors for members of the GLTBIQ+ population.
•    Treatment interventions and approaches when working with the GLBTIQ+ population.
