Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognising the influence LGBT people have had around the world.

Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969.

Pride Month is so important because it marks the start of huge change within the LGBT+ community, as well as the wider societal implications. Although attitudes and injustice still remain, we have come a long way since the riots of 1969 and by continuing in this long standing tradition we continue to raise awareness, improve the attitudes of society and encourage inclusiveness. #Pride2020

Let's celebrate together by colouring the rainbow template and displaying it in a window at home, work or business.

To be featured on our Virtual Pride Wall and show support for our LGBT community, please send your rainbow photos to headspace.miranda@stride.com.au or tag @headspace.miranda and @glistenyouth on Instagram!

Important Points to Consider

Presentations to staff

We want to ensure that as a service we are meeting the needs of schools in the area as well as promoting a whole school approach to mental health. Before delivering workshops we encourage to schools to invite us in to meet and present to all staff to ensure they are aware of what we do too.

Type of workshop

Please note that headspace Miranda provides education workshops that are of a general nature and have a health promotion and education focus. We deliver these workshops to promote positive mental health and well-being and encourage young people to do the same. Our Community Engagement Team are unable to provide sessions with a medical or therapeutic focus.

Invite Other Schools

We encourage partnering with other schools when creating events such as well-being days. Due to the number of requests which headspace Miranda receives, events that encourage interschool partnerships and reach a broader audience will be prioritised.

Demand for request

It is important to note that while headspace Miranda will endeavour to meet all requests in a timely manner, there may be times when this is not possible due to the clinical demand on the service.
