TIME TO TACKLE LGBT MEN­TAL HEALTH

Diva (UK) - - News Round-up -

Over a third of LGBT peo­ple are suf­fer­ing from men­tal health is­sues, a rate 15% higher than the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion. A re­port by the Lon­don Assem­bly Health Com­mit­tee found that one in six LGBT peo­ple have ex­pe­ri­enced ho­mo­pho­bic, bi­pho­bic or trans­pho­bic hate crime at some point in their life. Authors of the study urged the Mayor of Lon­don, Sadiq Khan, to do more for LGBT men­tal health as he is in a “unique” place to pro­vide change.
