“Accessible, inclusive and equitable healthcare is a fundamental human right. However, for LGBTI people, health and wellbeing remains
an area where significant disparity
still exists between LGBTI Australians and their non-LGBTI peers. These health disparities directly impact the potential for LGBTI people
to live life to their full potential as healthy, happy, productive and contributing members of society. Breaking down the obstacles to
better health and wellbeing for LGBTI Australians means enthusiastically embracing an inclusive approach to all health care that is open,
non-judgmental, responsive to the unique needs of individuals, and validates their experiences and dignity.
At Stirling Psychology we are committed to LGBTQIA+ inclusion. Being inclusive requires action as well as words. We believe that an LGBTQIA+ inclusive service is one that meets the specific needs of each client, taking into account their lived experience. It challenges assumptions and stereotypes about gender and sexually diverse minorities. LGBTQIA+ people are welcomed and encouraged to seek support where they will never experience judgement or discrimination, because of their gender identity, sexuality, or intersex status. These are the values that the online & Mornington psychologists and support team at Stirling Psychology will continue to demonstrate and support.
