June is Pride Month!
Mental Health America information
The LGBTQ+ community has twice the likelihood of experiencing mental health symptoms due to a variety of reasons. Schroeder Stribling, Mental Health America’s President and CEO states in their article, Pride and Mental Health, “Inequity harms mental health. While being LGBTQ+ is NOT a mental health condition or concern, LGBTQ+ individuals experience mental health struggles at higher rates than their straight and cisgender peers. Mental health challenges among the LGBTQ+ community are primarily due to individuals facing stigma, discrimination, and bias in many forms.” You can help by showing support and viewing the link above where they offer facts, resources, events and examples of social media messaging.
