LBGTQ+ HEALTH & WELLNESS RESOURCES
"The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex (LGBTQI*) community represents a diverse range of identities and expressions of gender and sexual orientation. In addition to these identities, members of the community are diverse in terms of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality and socioeconomic class." - National Alliance on Mental Illness
IMPORTANT RISK FACTORS OF LGBTQI MENTAL HEALTH
10 WAYS TO SUPPORT LGBTQ+ RIGHTS DURING PRIDE MONTH
"June is LGBTQ Pride month, a time to commemorate The Stonewall riots in June 1969. While much progress has been made since then, studies show that if you’re an LGBTQ employee, you share some of the same concerns of recrimination and stigmatization as those struggling with mental illness in the workplace: fear your boss would treat you differently, question your ability to function in your position, discriminate against you or pass you over for promotions and pay raises." - Forbes
"For many LGBTQI people, socioeconomic and cultural conditions negatively impact mental health conditions. Many in the LGBTQI community face discrimination, prejudice, denial of civil and human rights, harassment and family rejection, which can lead to new or worsened symptoms, particularly for those with intersecting racial or socioeconomic identities." - National Alliance on Mental Illness
