Everyone needs support to live a happy life. Supporting the mental health of your LGBTQ loved one means you should be there for them when they need you, and if you notice they are having a hard time, reach out to them and let them know you care.
You can also help your LGBTQ loved ones find a solid therapist that’s LGBTQ-friendly. This can be in an actual building, or online. You can also help your loved one get connected with LGBTQ support groups, and let them know that they can use any of the LGBTQ hotlines. They’re free!
Donating to mental health and anti-discrimination organizations like Fenway Health and the Anti-Violence Project can help support the LGBTQ movement too. This can bring more awareness to mental health inside of the LGBTQ community, while also establishing more organizations and research that can benefit the lives of LGBTQ members.
