Happy Pride London!

    Mind in Harrow is flying the rainbow flag in their office in support and celebration of the LGBT+ community. 

    Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other sexual and gender minorities, like anyone, will experience mental health challenges and distress during their lifetime.

    However the evidence both from the UK and internationally highlights increased levels of common mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety and stress among people from these groups.

    The negative impacts of experiences of discrimination and marginalisation, both direct and indirect, on LGBT+ individuals and groups are well established.

    Research also suggests that there may be additional inequalities affecting LGBT+ people from ethnic minority communities or those living with disabilities.

    52% of young LGBT+ people reported self-harm either recently or in the past compared to 25% of heterosexual non-trans young people and 44% of young LGBT+ people have considered suicide compared to 26% of heterosexual non-trans young people.

    At Mind in Harrow, our HeadsUp project supports young people’s mental health for those aged 14-25 years in Harrow.  As part of the project, we partner with The Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre to support LGBT+ young people to build self-esteem and confidence through a mix of one-to-one sessions and weekly youth club sessions that provide a variety of workshops.

    Further support is available from London Friend, 56 Dean Street, Metro Centre, Stonewall and Opening Doors London.

    We are wishing everyone a Happy Pride and UK Black Pride in London this weekend.
