Training Mental Health Outpatient Clinics on Promising Practices for LGBT Care

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center will develop a program that provides training to the staff, clinicians, and administrators of 6 outpatient mental health clinics in Eastern Pennsylvania on promising practices for providing affirming mental health care to the LGBT community. The training will encompass implications for practice, minority stressors, barriers to care, and the increased rates of trauma within the LGBT population. The training, designed to benefit both LGBT patients and clinicians, will welcome attendee engagement, discuss specific clinician concerns and scenarios in achieving LGBT-affirming care, and connect clinics to resources available through MedlinePlus. This project is critical to reduce two staggering disparities affecting our community: mental wellness and access to comprehensive, welcoming care.
