LGBT Mental Health: Therapy, Acceptance, Stigma

gay mental health
When it comes to LGBT Mental Health, feeling like an outsider or being alienated from friends and family can lead to all kinds of psychological issues, including anxiety, isolation and low self-esteem. If you think that therapy is just for people with massive psychological damage, think again! Therapy is one of the most effective ways to help members of the LGBTQ community learn to accept themselves. Working through these complex emotions with a mental health professional is an important step towards creating and developing a healthy sense of self. Many people turn to the web and other self-help outlets (podcasts, books, support groups) to fill the void. The internet is full of guides designed to help people make sense of their thoughts and change behavior in certain aspects of their life. On Hornet you’ll find a range of thoughtful stories about LGBT mental health, therapy and helping and changing the LGBTQ community. If you’re thinking about reaching out to other like-minded individuals or a mental health professional, you can use some of these articles to find the help you’re looking for.
