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.
