Revitalized LGBT Mental Health Community

New LGBT Mental Health InformationWe've relaunched the LGBT Mental Health Community on the HealthyPlace website. You'll find over 100 new articles and videos dealing with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender mental health and related issues that are important to the LGBT community. Not only do we discuss gay mental health in detail, but there's also plenty of information on where to find gay support, gay support groups and organizations. Other topics include gay bullying, gay suicide, and things you should consider before coming out at work. Plus we have articles that address parents of gay children and some of the issues they face. We invite you to take a look.

We are also looking for a new blogger to write on LGBT and mental health issues. Could you be that person? More info here.
