beyondblue has become a mainstream national organisation which delivers LGBTI activities through a process of growth. This has meant the organisation has developed its approach in this specific area without the support of the mindOUT! LGBTI champions project.

In this session, the beyondblue LGBTI Communities Project Manager will outline the timeline of this growth process, some of the key points in the process, and will explore some of the advantages and challenges of entering this area of work without a Champions type project providing support.
