LGBTQIA+ Mental Health
Community resources, education, and events
Folks in the LGBTQIA+ community come from a diverse range of backgrounds, identities, and experiences. The intersectionality of these perspectives contributes to a resilient community that serves as a critical source of strength, pride, and belonging for many teens and adults.
At the same time, many within this community face unique challenges – particularly when it comes to mental health and wellness. These challenges, which are often rooted in socio-economic and cultural discrimination, have an even greater impact on individuals from historically minoritized racial and socioeconomic identities.
Understanding these risk factors and key considerations for LGBTQIA+ individuals is vital to achieving true health equity for all in our community.
