SKEPSI

Mental Health Project 

PRONIA is proud to introduce SKEPSI Mental Health Project. Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Victorian Mental Illness Awareness Council, Tandem and in collaboration with queerspace, the one-year project addresses the mental health and well health needs within the Australian Greek LGBTI, same sex attracted and queer community on issues impacting individuals and their families.                                                                                                                                                         

Objectives of SKEPSI

  • Develop culturally and linguistically appropriate information, marketing and messaging addressing the well health needs of the Greek LGBTI, same sex attracted, queer community and their families. 

  • Develop links and network with Greek LGBTI, same-sex attracted, queer individuals and their families.

  • Conduct consultations with the Greek LGBTI, same sex attracted and queer community and their families to identify gaps in service provision around well health, sexual identity, positive communication, self-worth, building capacity to deal with stressful life experiences and pressure.              

  • Facilitate community information sessions and workshops around positive self-worth, effective communication, functional relationships and family dynamics for Greek LGBTI, same sex attracted, queer community and their families
