LGBT communities

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people may face prejudice, discrimination and isolation. These added stresses can lead, in part, to higher rates of mental health and substance use problems. Supportive communities and knowledgeable service providers help build resilience and well-being so everyone is included and respected.
