Celebrating Gay Pride Month by Focusing on Mental Health

June is gay pride month, a time when people come together to celebrate the freedom to be themselves. It's also a time to commit to being your best self, and that means taking care of your overall mental health and well-being. We have come a long way in this society and members of the LGBTQIA+ community have more freedom to express who they truly are and who they choose to love. Despite the gains, LGBTQIA+ members continue to experience challenges and traumas, love and loss, illness, depression, anxiety, and more.

LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy takes a unique approach to healing because it focuses not only on acceptance of who an individual is but also integration of their sexuality or gender identity into the rest of their life and relationships. Trained therapists who specialize in serving members of the LGBTQIA+ community help them to feel more comfortable with who they are and what they desire.

This month, it's important that members of the LGBTQIA+ community make a commitment to their mental health so they can not only create positive change in their own lives, but also in our society as well.
