LGBT Mental Health Webinar: A Community & Clinical-Based Perspective
This workshop is designed to identify the challenges that community-based practitioners encounter when providing care to LGBT patients and discuss various (trauma-informed) community best practices that have shown to improve mental health factors for LGBT individuals. As providers, there is a responsibility to ensure both direct care and organizational practices operate from an LGBT trauma-informed approach that best facilitates a fostering culture while minimizing re-traumatization. But, understanding ones’ impact is not always obvious. Through an awareness of the social determinants that are involved and a willingness to implement effective empowering best practices, providers can best maximize the resiliency of their LGBT patients.
