Picabeen Safe Space – LInc Recipient Spotlight

Picabeen Safe Space is an established drop-in program that supports LGBTQIA+ young people and allies, facilitated by an identified lesbian/queer youth worker. Picabeen Safe Space supports young people to build their skills and connections through the development of teamwork, communication, resilience and education on issues that impact the community.

Groups explore health and wellbeing topics in terms of mental health and healthy relationships, and assistance they can access through peer support from other group members and the qualified youth worker that facilitates the group. Picabeen understands the impact young people’s social network has on their health and well-being, leading to important education surrounding their safety through friendships and respectful relationships.
