The Cost of Adverse LGBTIQ+ Mental Health

Switchboard Victoria CEO Joe Ball and Thorne Harbour Health CEO Simon Ruth speak with us about the new report, The Cost of Adverse LGBTIQ+ Mental Health.

The poor mental health outcomes of LGBTIQ+ Victorians comes at an economic and financial cost estimated to be as high as $3 billion in research from Deloitte.

Commissioned by Thorne Harbour Health, the findings show the rate of lifetime mental health for LGBTIQ+ Victorians is 73%, significantly higher than the 46% among the general population.

You can find the report and press release on the Thorne Harbour Health website.

Check out our other JOY Podcasts for more on LGBTIQ health & wellbeing.
