LGB Mental Health & Wellbeing Guide
We all have mental health, just as we have physical health and that means it’s just as important that we look after it. Mental and physical health impact on each other, so in this booklet, we’ll be sharing some useful tips to help you to look after yourself day-to-day, as well as some things you can do when you’re not feeling your best.
Our mental health can be affected by lots of different things and we know that for lesbian, gay and bisexual people, issues such as homophobia, isolation and discrimination can really start to take their toll, along with everything else life can throw at us.
In fact, it’s thought that lesbian, gay and bisexual people are at significantly higher risk of mental health problems, suicidal thoughts and deliberate self harm than heterosexual people.
So it’s never been more important to get to know your mental health, learn how to take care of it and don’t be afraid to ask for support, no matter what it is you’re going through, you’re not alone.
