Being a member of the LGBTQ community doesn’t necessarily increase the risk for mental health issues; but the stigma and discrimination LGBTQ individuals may face from family, friends and society can increase risk for mental health challenges.

Check out California’s Mental Health Movement, Each Mind Matters for help starting important conversations and finding safe places for support.

Be True and Be You: A Basic Mental Health Guide for LGBTQ+ Youth

This brochure discusses caring for your mental health as an LGBTQ+ young adult, including information on sexual orientation, gender identity, and coming out; healthy relationships; common mental health challenges and their symptoms; when to reach out for support; and your rights as a young person seeking support.

Latinx: A Brief Handbook

The objective of this guide is to provide a historical context of the term “Latinx,” clarify common misconceptions of the term, and create space for an adaptive usage of Latinx that both respects non binary individuals and takes into consideration broader community concerns.

Trans and Non-Binary People

Transgender people and individuals who identify outside the gender binary experience unique challenges that are influenced by societal stigma and discrimination. This collection of resources addresses mental health and well-being among trans and non-binary individuals.
