Lived Experience Framework (LifeSpan)
The Black Dog Institute’s Lived Experience Framework was developed to outline recommendations for effectively engaging people with lived experience of suicidality, bereavement by suicide and mental illness. It was also created with reviews from their families, support people and carers of those with lived experiences. Key insights from the Framework inform Black Dog’s implementation of the LifeSpan systems approach to suicide prevention.

Network MindOUT Webinars
This exciting and innovative series of webinars that critically engages with topics relevant to understanding mental health and suicide prevention for LGBTI people.
In each webinar, the presenter will speak for 40 minutes on a topic pertinent to LGBTI mental health and suicide prevention, followed by a Q&A session.

Webinars are recorded, and are able to be watched at any time.
There has been increasing recognition of LGBTI populations within mental health and suicide prevention, and work has begun to ensure that programs and services are inclusive of and accessible to LGBTI people. However for many, their knowledge and understanding of LGBTI people is minimal, and so this task is daunting and not prioritised.
To support confidence in aiming for LGBTI inclusive practice, this webinar will cover introductory information to support an increased understanding of LGBTI people and communities, and will provide an overview of what is known about the mental health and wellbeing outcomes for this population.
