Resources for LGBTQIA+ Health

Resources for LGBTQIA+ Health

For those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, finding health resources can be challenging. According to NAMI, individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ are at a higher risk for mental health disorders. There are many factors that can contribute to this increased health risk, some of which include discrimination, rejection, and harassment. Regardless of your identity, feeling unaccepted as who you are can be very damaging to one’s mental health.
