You've Got a Friend

Lesbian and bisexual women may be more likely than heterosexual women to suffer from depression, anxiety or other mental health issues.Research shows that most lesbian and bisexual women would first seek help from a friend, so we've put together our 'You've Got A Friend' guide to offer practical tips to anyone who is trying to help their friend.

Sexual Violence

It's important to acknowledge that people's experiences, especially traumatic experiences, can significantly impact on their mental health. LGBT Foundation have produced a guide for lesbian and bisexual women who are survivors of rape or sexual assault. Click here to download this guide.

Sexual violence is a complex issue which impacts on the lives of victims in very different ways, but there are some common reactions, which this booklet will help you to get to grips with.

Whatever point you’re at in your journey towards moving on, we want you to know that you’re not alone; there is support out there if you’d like it, and things can get better.

*LGBT Foundation’s services for women are inclusive of trans women, non-binary people and gender fluid people who identify as lesbian, bisexual or questioning their sexual orientation. We try to make our services welcoming and accessible to all; if you have any specific access requirements please let us know and we'll try to help.
