LGBTQ - issues that matter

If you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer or questioning your sexual identity (LGBTQ) you may feel confused, isolated and misunderstood. This can bring added pressure if you are uncertain about how friends and family will react to your coming out.

These pressures can stop young people from talking to people and accessing support which can have a negative effect on your mental health.

If you are LGBTQ you may need additional support on a range of issues including your sexuality or gender identity, coming out, transitioning, bullying, relationships and sexual health, hate crime and friendships.
