GLEN'’s work on Mental Health and Well Being

Stress experienced because a person is LGBT - minority stress - has real and negative effects on the mental health and well being of LGBT people . GLEN is working to prevent LGBT suicide and promote LGBT mental health by increasing awareness of LGBT mental health issues, supporting mainstream services to be more LGBT-friendly, and establishing targeted supports for LGBT people. To achieve this we work closely with the National Office for Suicide Prevention, HSE Health Promotion, professional bodies, mental health agencies and LGBT organisations, leading new developments, policies and research to support LGBT people.
