LGBT – Peer Support Services

MIMH LGBT Poster_v1 (1)-page-001.jpgSome of us identify ourselves as LGBTQ, which means we may be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer or questioning – or we may define our gender and sexuality in other ways.

LGBTQ people can be at a higher risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the wider population. If you are LGBTQ and have experienced mental health issues, you are not alone.
You might even experience discrimination, rejection, negative reactions or hostility from family members, friends, strangers, employers or members of the religious community. This can have a big impact on your self-esteem and mean you might feel unable to be open about your sexual or gender identity at work, at home or in the world at large. Therefore we would like to provide space for you to come and just be and also have the opportunity to talk about your emotional health and wellbeing.
