Finding the support you need for issues arising from LGBT identities can make a big difference to your wellbeing.

Sexual identity & mental health

Issues surrounding mental health are not dictated by our sexual orientation or gender. However, for those of us who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered, there are potential sources for trauma due to the discrimination and homophobic attitudes within society.

Fear and confusion about ‘coming out’ and its subsequent effect upon your relationships is but one issue that can leave lasting damage to you self-esteem. If you are an LGBT individual then you may have experienced emotional trauma due to a variety of situations and sources. Whether these sources of psychological stress are historic or current, they have the potential to cause real suffering.

This has the potential to lead to further problems such as depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. It is therefore incredibly important to find the right help to resolve the issues that have arisen within your life as they can have a profound effect on your overall happiness and the choices you make.
