SAMHSA has released Top Health Issues for LGBT Populations Information & Resource Kit. This publication shows a welcome commitment by SAMHSA to creating awareness of the needs, experiences, and health status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans and to addressing behavioral health disparities.
Top Health Issues for LGBT Populations Information & Resource Kit informs health care providers and prevention specialists about the health experiences of LGBT populations. Understanding the health issues of LGBT individuals is a significant step in improving access to care and the quality of behavioral health services.
The information and resource kit contains seven fact sheets as well as PowerPoint slides that can be used individually or together.
