LGBTQ communities face health disparities linked to stigma, discrimination, and denial of their civil and human rights. LGBTQ individuals have higher rates of psychiatric disorders, substance use, violence, and suicide and may encounter lack of acceptance by their family members and the society which affects their mental health and personal safety. This webinar series will be served to explore how bias impact our worldview and the work with the LGBTQ population, to identify health disparities among LGTBQ population, and to explore interventions to create a safe space and minimize the impact of implicit bias.
