Altered High Youth Service is a safe place for LGBTIQQ* youth.
In addition to all our clinicians being friendly and supportive, we also have a clinician whose primary role is to provide expertise support in working with young people who identify as LGBTI or are struggling with their sexuality or gender.
For young people who identify as LGBTI or are questioning their sexuality or gender, life can be complex and difficult. Unsurprisingly Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) use are common place. While AOD use may seem to be helpful in dealing with problems in the short term, it can eventually become another problem.
If you or your young person would like the support of our LGBTIQQ clinician, you can indicate this on our referral form.
* (LGBTIQQ) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer or Questioning.
