June is an essential month for raising awareness about the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community. Accessing high-quality mental health care can be particularly difficult for individuals within this community compared to their heterosexual counterparts. Cultural stigmas, religious views, and prejudices encountered in various settings like school, work, and even at home contribute to the higher prevalence of mental health conditions.
The LGBTQ+ community is at a greater risk of bullying, teasing, harassment, and physical violence, which further exacerbates their mental health struggles. Internal battles, such as self-acceptance and the need to conceal one’s identity, also play a significant role in the development of poor mental health. Consequently, depression, anxiety disorders, and suicidality are more prevalent, with studies showing rates of 61% for depression, 45% for PTSD, and 36% for anxiety disorders within this community.
