    Webinar: Gender diversity and mental illness | Students from an LGBTIQ backgrounds

    ADCET and the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) presented this webinar in July 2018. Gender diversity and mental illness. Students from an LGBTIQ background. What support is available?

The panel, an academic, DA background, tutor and a student, are from diverse sections of the LGBTIQ community and they discussed their experiences and what they would find more inclusive and helpful when studying and working in a tertiary environment.
