COVID-19 Online Workshops
Mental health is of increased concern for all Australians during this period of enforced isolation and particularly so for the LGBTQIA+ community, a community already facing significant mental health inequalities prior to COVID-19.
Qrise is rolling out our suite of workshops as cloud-based videoconferences from May, in response to restrictions on movement and gatherings.
Qrise can trace its beginnings back to the creation of Qheadspace, an online chat service created by Qrise co-founders Sara Strachan and Charlie Cooper, run by headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation.
We’re fortunate to have a high level of experience in online mental health service and a digital-first approach that allows us to confidently continue operations remotely for the foreseeable future.
Some of the workshops we’ve adapted for the cloud are described below and on our website, available at reduced costs during the pandemic. These foundational workshops have been designed with collaboration and customisation in mind, in order to tailor them to the needs of your organisation.
In particular, our workshop for friends and family is one we hope can assist allies who are sharing space with an LGBTQIA+ young person for the duration of COVID-19 isolation measures.
