Queer Mental Health Peer Support Website

Unread postby AndrewBCSS » 12 Dec 2011

Hi there,
I was recently told of a website providing online support for LGTBQ people with mental health issues.
It's at http://www.queermentalhealth.org The following is an excerpt from their "About" page. You or your loved one(s) may find it useful.

"QueerMentalHealth.org is an online peer support website for LGBTQ people with mental health issues and their concerned partners. This website is meant to be a safe, anonymous space for all people who fall under the queer umbrella. That includes people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirited, intersexed, queer, questioning, and allies as well.

Our mission is to foster peer support and a sense of community for queer people and their partners who deal with mental health issues. We can accomplish this by providing a space for individual voices to be heard and recognized for the struggles we all face together."
