The LGBTQ community can be affected by mental health problems just like anyone else.

Members of the LGBTQ community may experience trauma at some point in their life such as bullying, harassment, and discrimination. This may lead to depression, anxiety or substance abuse.

Unfortunately, many LGBTQ people don’t feel comfortable reaching out to a mental health professional if they are having issues. They fear they will not be treated with respect or dignity and might even be discriminated against.

As a result, many people in the LGBTQ community suffer in silence and do not get the treatment they need. That’s why it’s important to have resources that you can turn to for information about LGBTQ mental health and finding support.
