LGBTQ+ youth and mental health

The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) has released a new podcast episode exploring a systematic review research paper on the impact of childhood adversities on the mental health of LGBT+ young people. The research paper includes studies from the United States, Asia, Canada and Europe. The episode discusses how sexual orientation disclosure is linked with mental health problems such as social anxiety disorder, phobia, or PTSD. Findings from the paper are discussed in relation to child and mental health (CAMH) professionals working with young LGBT+ patients, and how schools should prepare for working with LGBT+ students.
