Happy Pride Month

Pride month is a time for the LGBTQIA+ community and allies to come together in solidarity to celebrate and embrace identity. We want to remind our communities we foster that support and acceptance of one’s sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression directly impacts their mental wellness and personal safety.

Unfortunately, LGBTQIA+ individuals often face discrimination making it difficult to access quality treatment for mood disorders. Many people learn that not all mental health providers understand their experiences. These negative interactions with providers can mean our loved ones are less likely to seek help when they need it most.

What can you do? These are reputable mental health resources created for LGBTQIA+ people and share them with those of us in aviation to broaden their support portfolio.
