About Better Pride
At Better Place Australia, all people matter to us. We believe that everyone, regardless of background, has the right to be treated with respect, dignity, professionalism, promptness and care – this is why we introduced the Better Pride service stream.
We understand life can be distressing, emotional and confusing - but we're here to help you reach a better place.
We believe that excellent support for LGBTIQ+ communities requires three key elements:
- LGBTIQ+ identifying and ally Clinicians: All our Practitioners have worked with community members in a variety of capacities and understand the complex and relevant issues that can arise;
- Highly skilled and qualified Clinicians: All of our Better Pride Practitioners complete specialist training and education in the LGBTIQ+ space;
- A commitment to social justice and standing up and speaking out against discrimination:
For some, the social climate makes it difficult to maintain an authentic sense of self: especially in the face of social expectations and pressures. Our Better Pride service supports LGBTIQ+ people through facilitating community access, empowering clients, and working to diminish the impact of systemic challenges.
