Michael and Cal are back with you this week as we continue our exploration of sexual health, mental health, and the general health & wellbeing of our LGBTI communities.

As we move further into practicing good physical distancing – we’re taking a look at how we can look after ourselves and each other while we’re at home.

We check in with Thorne Harbour Health CEO Simon Ruth about how the organisation has been responding to communities concerns about what COVID-19 means for us.

We touch base with Thorne Harbour Health Manager of Therapeutic Services & Capacity Building, Venetia Brissenden.  Venetia helps us explore ways to keep calm and carry on whether working from home, out of work, or caring for ourselves and loved ones.


Check in, and check out:
