Pride Month: Never be ashamed of who you are

June 30, 2023

Throughout Pride Month, we celebrate with the LGBTQIA+ community, and the ongoing campaign for acceptance and equality.

Being LGBTQIA+ doesn’t cause mental health problems, and yet those of us that are LGBTQIA+ are known to be more likely to suffer with mental health issues for reasons because of:

  • Discrimination
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Social isolation
  • Rejection
  • Difficult experiences coming out

The sad thing is that many of these are avoidable.

No one’s mental health should suffer simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity – never be ashamed of who you are.

Support yours or someone else’s mental health

We have lots of resources with useful information and advice on how you can look after and support your mental health and wellbeing.
