Flinders Medical Students’ Society is proud to support marriage equality. 

Protecting equal human rights is a very real health issue; and one we each encounter through our own lens. LGBTIQ+ individuals experience higher levels of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and self-harm compared with the general population. 

Marriage equality is an important step toward overcoming harmful systemic inequity and oppression; we can, each of us, contribute to dismantling discrimination, and fostering the good, community-wide mental health outcomes we strive for in our personal and professional lives.

For all of our LGBTIQ+ friends, family, colleagues, and patients; FMSS VOTES YES.
