When you look at the latest annual report from BeyondBlue, it soon becomes obvious the organisation has engaged in some heavy lifting with its partner networks to get the mental health message out there. Whether it’s neo-natal, indigenous, or rural mental health, BeyondBlue has been almost relentless in its efforts to reach groups who are at risk. Except one.

Just under 12 months ago, BeyondBlue commissioned Latrobe University to do a summary of the current research on Same Sex Attracted ( SSA ) people, and how they were travelling with their mental health. SSA is an umbrella term, and basically covers people who identify as not straight. The results are very, very confronting.
