Supporting Aotearoa's rainbow people: A practical guide for mental health professionals

This resource was created through collaboration between InsideOUT, RainbowYOUTH, Gender Minorities Aotearoa, Youth Wellbeing Study and Gloria Fraser. The resource is based on findings from the Rainbow Mental Health Support Experiences Study and the Out Loud Aotearoa Project.


Mental health professionals don't always receive specific training about the needs and experiences of the rainbow community. This resource is designed to provide professionals with information to build on and strengthen their existing support skills.


The main booklet is available to download in a variety of formats – English, te reo Maori, Chinese, and large print. The artwork is beautiful and flows through into a supporting poster series available for download.
