Individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community have higher rates of anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, OCD, and self-harm. LGBTQ+ individuals also face discrimination, physical assault and hate crimes, all of which impact mental health. Stigma, discrimination, isolation, and social stress can contribute to mental health problems and make a person feel ashamed about who they are.
CMAP Health is an open space where everyone is respected and welcome. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been proven effective in helping LGBTQ+ clients overcome mental health concerns and live as freely as possible. If you identify as LGBTQ+ and want to speak to someone, book an appointment with a member of our team today.
