Bi+ Australia provides specialised counselling support for people who are attracted to more than one gender, or questioning their attraction or sexuality, and their families and loved ones. You can access this service from anywhere in Australia via online video call.
The Education Hub at Bi+ Australia provides education and information to both service providers and the general public with the aim of increasing awareness and understanding of people who are attracted to more than one gender.
Bi+ Australia is committed to conducting, supporting and promoting high quality research relating to bisexuality both nationally and internationally. The Bi+ Research Centre has been developed in direct response to both the high rates of poor mental health among bi+ people and the severe lack of research relating to this population. Our core research focus is to generate and promote new knowledge that will assist in the improvement of bi+ peoples’ mental health and lead to a greater understanding of bisexuality and pansexuality. In addition we seek to be a driving force behind an increased focus on bisexuality in research being conducted in Australia through strategic direction, support and collaboration.
Who this service is for
It doesn’t matter what your sexual identity is (heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, gay, another identity, unsure or questioning), or whether you have had intimate partners or not. Bi+ Australia is an inclusive service that provides specialised counselling for:

- Other close friends and family members that are wanting to support a loved one who is attracted to more than one gender or questioning their attraction or sexuality
Bi+ Australia offers a range of education opportunities for health professionals, educators and other service providers. Our education aims to upskill professionals to better work with bisexual people and their families by promoting an understanding of bisexual diversity, enhancing knowledge of the latest research and evidence-based practice relating to working with bi+ people and fostering the development of skills that ensure the delivery of inclusive and competent services.
