Look After Your Mental Health

Mental health problems can affect anyone, but they’re more common among people who are LGBT+

Attitudes and laws have changed for the better but older LGBT+ people have a long personal history of lived experiences that may include discrimination, rejection, social isolation, and negative reactions from family, friends and colleagues. Some people have lived large parts of their lives without feeling able to tell anyone that they are LGBT+

It’s important to look after your mental health and get support when you need it. Talking to other members of OLGBT can help combat feelings of loneliness and social isolation. There are also local and national organisations that can help, some of which are listed below.
