LGBTIQ+

Anyone can experience mental health difficulties but those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, binary, queer or questioning are more likely to develop difficulties like low self esteem, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, suicidal thoughts and other mental health problems. Being LGBTIQ+ does NOT cause these problems but there are reasons why you may be more likely to develop issues like this, such as homophobia, social isolation and difficulties in coming out. We know it can be difficult to reach out to health professionals when you are struggling, but we are here to help. We offer a non-judgmental service and treat everyone who accesses our service equally and with dignity. Please contact us on 01225 675150 to book an appointment or peruse the resources listed below for further support and information.
