In many ways, LGBTQ people have similar behavioral health care needs to the general population. For many LGBTQ people, however, living as a stigmatized minority can cause undue stress, leading to mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and unhealthy coping behaviors, such as substance use disorders or high-risk sexual activity. This module discusses behavioral health disparities faced by LGBTQ populations, explains how these may differ across LGBTQ subpopulations, and discusses evidence-based clinical practices in LGBTQ behavioral health care.
