IT'S TIME TO CHANGE

HOW QUEER COMMUNITY MEMBERS ACCESS MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

Queer people experience a higher rate of mental health disorders partly due to the intersecting oppressions of homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia therefore queer-affirming mental health professionals are critical in the lives of queer individuals and families.

They provide a safe and welcoming space for those who may not feel comfortable or supported, affirm queer identities, and help individuals explore and understand their personal struggles with mental health and gender identity.
