Marriage Equality Counselling and Support

At the request of the Mental Health Commission, the WA AIDS Council will provide counselling services during the Australian Marriage Equality Postal Survey. 

Additional face-to-face, telephone and online counselling is available throughout the survey process. 

To chat online, clikc the 'Need Help?' tab on the left side of this page. 

Achieving marriage equality is an important step towards reducing the disadvantage, discrimination and distress experienced by LGBTI people and is essential for promoting the health and wellbeing of LGBTI people and communities. Better social outcomes = better health outcomes, including helping educating people about HIV, reducing HIV stigma and preventing further transmission of HIV. 

If you are feeling overwhelmed, angry, judged, sad, disappointed, or just want someone to talk to about marriage equality, please call the hotline.
