Celebrating Resilience, Promoting Equity
Welcome to Contigo Wellness as we celebrate LGBTQ+ Mental Health Awareness Month. This is a time to honor the strength and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community while raising awareness about the unique mental health challenges they face. Join us in promoting mental health equity for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Why LGBTQ+ Mental Health Matters
The LGBTQ+ community has made significant strides in achieving legal rights and social acceptance, but mental health disparities persist. LGBTQ+ individuals are more likely to experience:
Higher Rates of Depression and Anxiety: Discrimination and stigma can lead to increased rates of depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions.
Suicide Risk: LGBTQ+ youth are at higher risk of suicide, often due to bullying and rejection.
Substance Abuse: Coping with discrimination can lead to substance abuse issues in some LGBTQ+ individuals.
