Mental Health Service
Our LGBTIQA+ Specialist Mental Health Service in Adelaide is a service for lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary and gender diverse, intersex, queer, and asexual community members experiencing mental illness and psychological distress aged 16 and above.
We provide peer support, brief intervention, clinical care coordination, counselling and structured psychological therapies free of charge. Clients may self-refer or be referred via their GP or other health provider. A current Mental Health Treatment Plan is required for clinical care coordination and structured psychological therapies.
Thorne Harbour Health understands the ways in which both structural and systemic oppressions and homophobia, biphobia, intersexism and transphobia impact mental health and wellbeing and the barriers LGBTIQA+ community members can experience when accessing services. Our staff have lived experience and/or extensive experience working with LGBTIQA+ clients. We offer a trauma-informed, sex-positive, gender and sexuality affirming service.
The service will operate from Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.
Telehealth appointments can be provided.
Afterhours appointments may be available by request.
