Many people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, or any other orientation may find that the social stigma regarding their identification is stressful–often resulting in anxiety or depression.
Whether someone who identifies with the LGBTQ community feels concerns with their mental health, it is often important they seek therapy services to process their concerns and thoughts. Many LGBTQ people with mental health conditions may often find themselves fighting “double stigma.” Many people will not only experience judgement based on their sexual/gender identity—they also experience judgement based on their mental illness. Managing these challenges with a therapist can lead to a happier life.
PCA hopes to support this community in every way and allow members of the LGBTQ community a safe place to discuss and process their personal feelings and mental illnesses. We do not want this community to go overlooked. We hope you choose our open and compassionate counselors to help process these emotions.
