ZBGC Youth Suicide Prevention Project 2013 Annual Report
ZBGC received State Government funding as part of the HEY Project to deliver a Youth Suicide Prevention Project to mid-2015. This project is one of ZBGC’s major community projects. The ZBGC Youth Project worker Zoe Birkinshaw works with targeted and mainstream health and human service providers to improve support to our community by developing resources and training for health and human service workers, working in and with the intersex, trans and gender diverse communities, and supporting the activities of its youth organisations.
The Youth Project recently celebrated its first birthday! It has been an amazing and inspiring year of meeting and working with phenomenal activists, service providers and community members. Trainings have provided the space for individual workers and agencies to extend their knowledge when working with these communities, and to practically explore inclusive practice.
Thanks to everyone who has supported the work of the project, and provided endless inspiration, both in Victoria and nationally. The generosity of other agencies in developing partnerships and offering support has made the project much stronger than it would otherwise be. This upcoming year will include more secondary consultation work, and more training.
