Mental health is important. It is especially important for the LGBTQ+ community.
Studies show that queer identifying people are more prone to mental health issues, yet the available resources for the LGBTQ+ community are scarce and not easily accessible.
Queer Quality understands the important role that art & entertainment plays in the mental health of the queer community. Escaping into your favorite show or past time can help with depression and anxiety. However, we also know this is not a fix to the underlying problem. So we have begun to put together a list of mental health resources specifically for the LGBTQ+ community. We will continue to add to this list along the way, and hope to reach every country around the globe.
If you have any information or links that you think we should display on our site for the queer community, in any country around the world, please reach out to us!! We are always stronger together. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Queer Quality has partnered with a new mental health app designed specifically for the LGBTQ+ community.
Safe Haven LGBTQ+ is an app designed for the queer community. Users will have the opportunity to have one-on-one peer communication with other queer members, called Talk Leaders, who can help ease the lonely feeling many LGBTQ+ people struggle with. Because there are still many places throughout the United States that do not have safe places for LGBTQ+ folks to socialize, Safe Haven LGBTQ+ is a perfect way for the queer community to make friends, talk about their problems and concerns, and help find resources for better physical and mental health.
Safe Haven LGBTQ+ is still in development, but will be available in iPhone and Android App Stores very soon.
It’s an unfortunate truth: substance abuse is common within the LGBTQ+ community. Alcohol and drug use can also be a sign that a person is attempting to cope with mental health issues on their own. DrugRehab.com understands this and has dedicated an entire space for the LGBTQ+ community and their rehabilitation needs. This site is full of useful information, warning signs, tips and ways to get help. It is completely confidential.
