Topic:  Addressing the mental health challenges with LGBT
 
Poor treatment of the LGBTQ population share a direct link to shame and stigma. Individuals who identify with this tend to experience higher rates of mental health issues than the general population.
Our guest speaker Lisa will discuss how one may experience more negative mental health outcomes due to prejudice and other biases. Knowing what challenges you may face as a member of the LGBTQ community and how to find and work with LGBTQ-inclusive providers can help ensure more positive outcomes. 

  

Lisa  has been working for policy changes to provide an equitable environment for ALL in our community.

Topic:   Understanding anxiety and depression in youth
 

Mental health conditions are common among teens and young adults. 1 in 5 live with a mental health condition—half develop the condition by age 14 and three quarters by age 24.


 
It is not uncommon for children to be diagnosed with both depression and an anxiety disorder, or depression and general anxiety. About half of people diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
