LGBQT2S people are more likely to struggle with mental health issues and substance use, yet few effective interventions are in place to address these issues. When LGBQT2S people attempt to access services, they face multiple barriers including stigma and financial constraints. Panelists will discuss new initiatives aimed at understanding and reducing these barriers, and will stimulate discussions on the need for targeted approaches.
Presented by Olivier Ferlatte, Caroline Mniszak, Rod Knight, Leslie Szeto, PJ Coulaud, Travis Salway. Moderated by Gwen Lister.
