Identifying as part of the LGBTQI+ community can lead to unique challenges in growing up and as an adult, including fears about coming out, worries about being accepted by friends and family, and the impact of prejudice and discrimination.
Being LGBTQI+ doesn’t mean you will have a mental health problem – the majority of LGBTQI+ young people do not, and many feel they can cope with the ups and downs of everyday life.
