While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a low mood – it’s a serious condition that affects your physical and mental health. LGBTQIA+ community, in general, are more prone to depression anxiety issues etc as the environment is always not very conducive.More often than not people from the community face rejections, have parental pressure to get married, struggle with their identity for years and this affects their careers which in turn affects their job prospects which further increases the probability of all mental illnesses.

In this workshop, you’ll explore the broad spectrum of sexualities, offering a safe and supportive space to ask questions and seek information.

This interactive workshop will address core elements of sexual and gender identity, gender definitions and explore the diversity that exists within the human sexuality spectrum. Time will be devoted to identifying our own internal biases in order to become fully accepting and supportive of those who identify as gender differences and belong to a sexual minority. As a cisgender queer female, Divya will share part of her personal journey, traveling on her road to coming out and finding a supportive network of queer friends and allies. The goal of this session is to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to have the cisgender privilege and how to eliminate the impact of discrimination and replace it with love.

The sessions will cover:
-Familiarisation with terminologies in the Gender and Sexuality Spectrum
-Sensitisation activities
-LGBTQIA Ally Training
-Identity Development Theories
-Sexual history taking and Psychotherapy with LGBTQIA clients
-Case Discussions
-Safe Sex Practices
