Text pride Month LGBTQIA with rainbow colored ribbon in shape of a heart

June 2024

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, and was created in recognition of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. Pride Month commemorates the struggle for equal rights and justice and is a celebration of the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community to our society. 

According to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI), LGBTQ+ adults are more than twice as likely as heterosexual adults to experience a mental health condition when compared to heterosexual adults and Transgender individuals are nearly four times more likely to have a mental health condition. LGBTQ+ youth are also at greater risk, with rates of depression six times higher than their non-LGBTQ+ peers. Disparities that can be linked to these higher rates of mental health conditions include stigma, discrimination, barriers to mental health care, and personal and family acceptance.

If you are in crisis and need help, our Warmline is open 24/7 at 410-768-5522.
