LGBTQ Pride Month – A Time to Increase Awareness

Mental health plays an important role in all of our lives. It contributes to our experiences with people and the emotions we experience towards events that happen in our lives. Mental health effects more than just our emotions and can go beyond how we react to certain situations. These conditions can cause changes in how we act, think and feel.

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community faces mental health conditions just like the rest of the population. Although, some individuals may experience unique negative stigma, prejudice, and other biases that affect their mental health.
