Common Mental Health Problems

While some mental health problems are fairly common they are sometimes misunderstood. This is a brief outline of some of these problems. If you are concerned that you, or someone you know, might be showing signs of a mental health problem, it is important to get support. Support can range from informal help from friends or family, advice from your doctor, counselling or medication.

Supporting LGBT people’s mental health

This website has been developed by GLEN and BeLonG To Youth Service and was funded by the HSE National Office for Suicide Prevention. Negative life experiences can be stressful and this stress can affect our mental health. Homophobia and transphobia can lead to specific stresses for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people that can also have a negative impact on their mental health. This website provides information for LGBT people on how they can look after their mental health and highlights the services available if LGBT people need support.
