Description

Description of the Class:
Evidence has consistently shown that lesbian, gay, transgender, and queer people generally experience greater mental health disparities and tend to utilize mental health services at higher rates. This is a result of challenging childhoods and distressing adult experiences coupled with the toxic impact of systemic oppression, heterosexism, monosexism, cisgenderism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism.
