MEMBERS STATEMENT

‘THORNE HARBOUR HEALTH REPORT’.

Thursday, 9 June 2022.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:42):

Thorne Harbour Health’s new report, The Cost of Adverse Mental Health Outcomes in the LGBTIQ+ Victorian Adult Population, estimates that poor mental health in the rainbow community, who represent up to 10 per cent of Victoria’s population, costs $3 billion.

It also estimates the rate of lifetime mental illness at 73 per cent compared with 46 per cent more broadly. The findings will help us understand the real impacts better.
