Mental Health Conditions That Impact The LGBTQ Community
LGBTQ individuals are nearly three times more likely to experience mental health problems like depression and general anxiety disorders. The fear of coming out and facing discrimination on account of sexual orientation and gender identity can result in depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, suicidal thoughts and alcohol and substance abuse.
LGBTQ individuals may face bias toward sexual identity while also coping with a bias against mental health challenges. As a general community, LGBTQ individuals may not often speak about mental health and may possibly lack awareness of relevant mental health conditions. Unfortunately, this can prevent some people from seeking out treatment and support that can be very beneficial. For a private consultation and to learn more about LGBTQ therapy at Bellosa Counseling call our offices at 847-656-5259
