This R U OK Day Central Coast Pride host space for two new drop in support groups.
1. LGBTI Youth 13-17yrs old &
2. Specifically for Gender variant Adults 18+.

“This R U OK day we wanted to be visible and offer support to help end the isolation and discrimination affecting too many LGBTI kids & Gender Variant people”

This year’s R U OK day Thursday September 12th marks the first strategically targeted Youth/LGBTIQ & Gender Variant led Central Coast R U OK day activations for the Coast.

Why?
LGBTI kids often experience isolation and loneliness that can result from stigma, discrimination and social exclusion. Reaching out and asking, “are you ok?” can be a way to let someone you care about know that you are available to talk, or to begin a conversation about something difficult to raise. It can also be a way to connect people to services that can help.
These great events will be co-presented by Wearit Purple, Headspace Gosford Lakehaven & Central Coast Pride with support from the LifeSpan Central Coast “R U OK?” Day small grant.

Please get behind this national day dedicated to inspiring all of us to have regular, meaningful conversations to support anyone struggling with life.

Statistics at a glance:
•    LGBTIQ+ youth are five times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers
•    16% of LGBTIQ+ youth have attempted suicide compared to 3.2 per cent of non-LGBTIQ+ youth in the same age bracket.
•    35% of Transgender people 18+ have attempted suicide, while 45 per cent have considered it.
•    19% of Intersex people have attempted suicide directly because of their intersex status.
