    You are not alone: Tobey's story

    Lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer identified individuals can face higher risks for some mental health issues as a consequence of facing discrimination, bullying, or fear of lack of acceptance. The fear of sharing one’s identity can lead to isolation, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Individuals may struggle with intense feelings of self-alienation and feel that they are a burden to others.

    As marginalized groups, #LGBQ and #transgender youth are at higher risk for #depression, #anxiety, #PTSD, #selfharm and #substanceabuse which compounds the risk factors for #suicide. The LGBTQ community suffers disproportionally from high rates of suicide.

    Having a supportive environment and a safe place to process all of these feelings and stressors, while receiving supportive and affirmative therapy can be life-saving for people. If you or a loved one may be struggling with these experiences, call Balance Treatment Center at (855) 414-8100 for more information about our programs, or visit www.BalanceTreatment.com. You are not alone.
