LGBTQIA+ Safe Space

The LGBTQIA+ community faces higher rates of mental health issues compared to the general population. Studies have found that LGBTQIA+ individuals are at a higher risk for depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse. This increased risk can be attributed to a number of factors, including discrimination, stigma, and lack of support. LGBTQIA+ individuals may face discrimination and prejudice from their families, peers, and even healthcare providers, which can lead to feelings of isolation and rejection. In addition, societal stigma and marginalization can create a hostile environment for LGBTQIA+ individuals, leading to chronic stress and trauma. Lack of access to gender-affirming medical care can also contribute to mental health issues. All of these factors can create significant barriers to seeking help and support for mental health concerns.

At Corner Canyon Health Centers, we understand how difficult it can be to struggle with mental health and we are prepared to support and help you in any way we can.
