Our Three Resources

We offer three different resources that cover a spectrum of mental health topics, and we believe that they will be beneficial to anyone on their mental health journey. These resources include Mental Health Resources, Psychologists for Kids, and Gender Confirmation Resources.

Our resources are essential since mental health issues can be detrimental to a person’s wellbeing. Not only that, these problems can have a more profound impact on society as a whole. This fact is especially true when treatment is delayed or isn’t sought out at all. 

To use the United States as an example, these statistics from NAMI show just how devastating untreated mental health can be:

  • Serious mental illness costs the U.S around $193.2 billion in lost earnings every year.
  • Mood disorders, for example, like depression and bipolar disorder, are the third most common reason patients are hospitalized between the ages of 18 and 44.
  • American adults diagnosed with a mental illness die about 25 years sooner than others.
  • 37% of students experiencing a mental health condition dropped out of high school.
  • Over 90% of children who die by suicide have suffered from a mental health disorder.

When mental health services are implemented as soon as possible, they can positively affect society (for example, lower health costs and freeing up limited resources). Furthermore, studies have shown that people use medical services 90% less when they receive adequate mental health care.

Mental Health Support for LGBTQ+ Folks

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and other queer identities (LGBTQ+) are at higher risk of mental health issues. The reason these communities are at greater risk is due to discrimination and the social determinants of health.

LGBTQ+ individuals may also experience many forms of marginalization, oppression, or disadvantages. For example, a person’s unique experience may be shaped by their sexual orientation, race, gender, disability, and income.

At LGBTQ and ALL, we recognize that intersectionality impacts the mental health of LGBTQ+ people in various ways. Intersectionality is where intersecting experiences of marginalization and the whole person’s needs are taken into consideration. 

Whether it’s dealing with racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, sexism, poverty, ableism, or more – being discriminated against because of your identity can negatively impact mental health. In addition, LGBTQ+ people struggling with their mental health may face additional barriers in accessing mental health services, whether it’s affordability or not finding inclusive treatment.

Essentially, at LGBTQ and ALL, we recognize the importance of mental health resources, accessibility to care, and tools and information for LGBTQ+ people. In addition, mental health services minimize the risk for chronic diseases that result from stress, anxiety, and substance abuse.

Mental health resources and services save lives. These services can also give people hope if they feel lost or disheartened.

What Our Resources Entail

Mental Health Resources

Our mental health resources help individuals access LGBTQ+-friendly health care professionals with top credentials and who are committed to their patients’ emotional health and wellbeing. This database offers contact information for mental health resources in cities worldwide.

Some of these mental health resources include psychologists, therapists, a psychiatrist, and different types of therapy. Some examples of treatment we can put you in touch with include:

  • Individual Therapy 
  • Psychotherapy
  • Couples Therapy 
  • Family Therapy 
  • Teletherapy
  • Anxiety Counseling
  • Depression Counseling 
  • Addiction Counseling 
  • LGBTQ+ Counseling
  • Trauma/PTSD Counseling
  • Holistic therapy 
  • Animal-assisted therapy
  • Adventure therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Art Therapy 
  • Dance movement therapy (DMT)
  • Somatic therapy

Psychologists for Kids

Children are facing mental health problems more and more each day. This fact has been especially true since the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, more than ever, young people are facing severe mental health problems and challenges that can interfere with their daily functioning, socialization, and other aspects of their life.

Child psychology is an essential mental health treatment option for children. Our list of resources is accessible worldwide, featuring the contact information of psychologists for kids in various cities. Our resources can also connect you to the following types of treatment:

  • Child Counseling
  • Adolescent Therapy
  • Parenting focused psychotherapy

Gender Confirmation Resources

Our gender confirmation resources provide transgender, non-binary, and other gender-diverse identities with information that can help them throughout their journey, whether they want to pursue medical transitioning or not.

Our list of board-certified surgeons from across the globe offers transgender folks the information they require if they decide they want to transition or are simply curious and want to consider their options. For some transgender and gender non-conforming folks, gender confirmation surgery can be a life-changing experience. 

Seeking out hormone therapy is another option that can make some transgender people feel more affirmed in their identity. If transitioning is something you want to pursue, we want to ensure that you find a qualified surgeon, which is why we have compiled a list of the top medical professionals in the world.

The Importance of Global Accessible Resources 

Since we live in such an interconnected world, embracing values that nurture this connectedness is crucial. Our resources are accessible from anywhere in the world and address challenging problems through various perspectives.

In our shared humanity, it is essential to work together as a collective, and we aim to reach communities around the world to foster innovation that enhances mental health. We believe that all people deserve resources and networks that benefit mental health across the globe and that these tools should be widely accessible.

Our Goals at LGBTQ and ALL 

Our Goals:

Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing for various individuals, including children, youth, and diverse LGBTQ+ identities.

Creating accessible mental health care that is made available to anyone globally. 

Providing a safe online space to all communities. 

Publishing relevant content that covers diverse topics. 

Our Promise

We know that the LGBTQ+ community is continually evolving. As a result, we are doing our part to ensure that we keep our information up-to-date and continue to grow with diverse communities.

Currently, one of our top priorities is to provide a fully accessible digital experience for disabled individuals. We recognize that some of our audience may be living with disabilities that impact their vision or hearing, which may interfere with their ability to navigate websites. In essence, we want the user experience to be accessible and enjoyable for all.
