Mental Health Awareness and the LGBTQ Community

June 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Melanie Dunbar, Ph.D., Director of Behavioral Health at  Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine for a discussion on Mental Health Wellness & the LGBTQ+ community. Proactive mental health wellness is vitally important. What does it mean to have mental health wellness? What exactly is it? What makes it up?

Disparities in access and quality of mental health care for the LGBT+ community create challenges for this community. This has even become more pronounced with new issues created by the pandemic and social unrest. How do we try to deal with this inequity and do what is needed for Mental Health Wellness.

Finally, how can you foster your own mental health wellness? What are the actions and concrete ways to do this? It is important to view mental health wellness as important as physical health and attend to it on a regular basis. We tend to make it more difficult for ourselves by trying to address it once a crisis has arrived.

Questions for Dr. Dunbar can be submitted to geaeinfo@gmail.com by Thursday, June 24.
