Title: Writing Themselves In Again – 6 years on. The 2nd national report on the sexual health and wellbeing of same-sex attracted young people in Australia   (PDF File 1.8 MB)

Author(s): Lynne Hillier, Alina Turner, Anne Mitchell

Subject(s): Young people

Description:

Writing Themselves In Again - 6 years on: the 2nd national report on the sexuality, health and well-being of same sex attracted young Australians is the follow up report to a similar study conducted in 1998. This earlier report documented the experiences of 750 young people at home, at school and in the community and revealed a number of negative experiences and concerning health outcomes for these young people. The dissemination of this research was at least partially responsible for a number of positive changes in support for same sex attracted young people (SSAY) in the following years. The purpose of repeating the survey in 2004 was to explore the extent to which these changes have made a difference.
