Mental health is an important part of overall health. The LGBTQ+ community can experience social stigma and discrimination, which can have a negative impact on mental health.
Let’s celebrate this Pride month by focusing on mental well-being and self-care!
Here are some ideas:
- Attend a Pride parade to connect with others. Show support for LGBTQ+ rights.
- Look for a safe space to connect with a support group.
- Give back to the community. Volunteer for LGBTQ+ causes.
- Take part in LGBTQ+ cultural events. Look for art exhibits, film festivals, or concerts. Have fun and learn something new.
- Do something creative to celebrate your identity.
- Take time for yourself in support of your mental health. Try meditation, exercise, or heading into nature.
- Spend time with supportive friends and family members. Celebrate your identity!
Everyone’s mental health needs are unique. Don’t forget about yours!
