This week – 13th-19th May – is Mental Health Awareness Week. We all have mental health, and as with our physical health, it’s extremely important that we look after it. We know that for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) and trans people issues such as homophobia, transphobia isolation and discrimination can have a drastic toll on mental health and wellbeing.
Manchester based Lesbian and Gay Foundation have published some great information on their website and also offer support via a telephone Helpline - 0845 30 30 30.
Whether you, or someone you know, is experiencing low mood, feeling nervous, worried or lacking in confidence, The LGF are there if you need them.
