Research shows that mental health problems such as depression and anxiety are more common in the LGBT+ community owing to a variety of factors and issues. Come and join our Strong Young Minds Champions as they discuss and debate how best to support young people struggling with their sexuality, gender and identity and those wanting to ‘come out’. How this affects their mental health and relationships with family and friends and where they can go for the best advice, support and resources. Find out what parents can do to support their young people and how professionals and teachers can provide a safe space for discussion.
