Studies show that adults who identify as LGB (lesbian, gay, bisexual) are more than twice as likely as the rest of the population to face a mental health condition, and individuals who identify as transgender are nearly four times as likely as cisgender individuals to experience a mental health condition.
Elevated rates in poor mental health among LGBTQ+ individuals are in part a result of several factors, including chronic stress, discrimination, social inequalities and increased trauma exposure.
In Angelina’s story, she discusses the identity-affirming care she received at Rogers for OCD and Somatic Symptom Disorder.
“As I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I feel especially lucky to be able to have access to mental health care and to have a supportive family,” Angelina says. ”Many minorities including the LGBT community struggle to have equal access to quality mental health care, and Rogers has always been completely encouraging of my identities and supportive in helping me come out to my family.”
Learn more in the video above about how Angelina was able to rise above her mental health challenges and pursue her aspirations to become a mental health advocate.
