Support with your Health

LGBT+ people access their GPs for back problems, colds, flu and general ill health, but tend not to use them for counselling or any LGBT+ specific issues as they can often feel they are ill equipped to deal with their needs or are concerned that they might receive a judgemental service because of a lack of understanding of their sexual orientation. This can affect the way LGBT+ people feel about themselves and how they think others perceive them, causing low self-esteem and low levels of confidence. This can lead to putting themselves in risky situations to counter these feelings.
