LGBTQ+ Mental Health Support

Celebrating pride with authentic mental wellness!

Pride Month is a beautiful time to celebrate the beautiful blend of experiences and identities that make up the LGBTQ+ community. It's a time to acknowledge the strength and resilience it takes to live authentically. But we also know that navigating your journey can sometimes feel overwhelming.

The statistics in India and around the world paint a grim picture of the Mental health of the LGBTQ+ community:

1. A 2016 study carried out by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that the community members consider suicide nearly three times more when compared to heterosexual community members. – Economic Times
2. The community members specifically suffer something called ‘minority stress.’
3. The LGBTQ youth are likely to suffer 1.75 times more anxiety and depression. – Economic Times
4. The transgender community is even more vulnerable as they suffer 2.4 times higher anxiety and depression, the TREVOR project survey revealed. – Economic Times
5. A study conducted in the U.S. reported that 38.6% of the total LGBTQ participants had considered committing suicide while 27.9% of the participants had attempted suicide (Green et al., 2020)
6. The following statistics from Mental Health America demonstrate the concerning mental health challenges facing the LGBTQIA+ community:

  • LGBTQIA+ teens are six times more likely to experience symptoms of depression than non-LGBTQIA+ identifying teens.

  • LGBTQIA+ youth are more than twice as likely to feel suicidal and more than four times as likely to attempt suicide than heterosexual youth.

  • 48% of transgender adults report that they have considered suicide in the last year, compared to 4% of the overall U.S. population.

7. LGBTQ youth are more likely to be victims of bullying – Juvonen and Graham 2014; Earnshaw et al. 2017.
8. Depression, anxiety, suicidality, general distress, and substance use show the largest disparities by sexual orientation and gender identity based on a variety of studies from the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, Australia, Southern Africa, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand.
