The team at headspace Canberra are long time advocates for same-sex attracted and genderdiverse young people, and as such, are proud to again support Wear it Purple this coming Friday.

Wear it Purple began in 2010, in response to growing concerns over the psychological wellbeing of young same-sex attracted and gender diverse people who experience significantly higher rates of suicide, self-harm, anxiety and depression.

Tracy Boomer, Youth Care and Community Engagement Coordinator at headspace Canberra, says it’s important to take every opportunity to support diversity and all the things that make a person unique.
