Psychological and Wellness Support Services for LGBTQ2+ Communities


In honour of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, Public Service Pride is pleased to partner with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat's Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer, Health Canada's Employee Assistance Program, and the Canada School of Public Service on a panel discussion about psychological and wellness support services for public service employees. The session will focus on how these services offer safe, sensitive and effective support to diverse clients, particularly those who self-identify as members of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two-spirit communities. A question-and-answer period will follow the panel discussion.
