Beyondblue Factsheet: Depression and Anxiety in GLBTI People

The majority of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people lead happy, healthy, fulfilling lives. However, studies have found that non-heterosexual people face up to twice as much abuse or violence (including physical, mental, sexual or emotional) than their heterosexual counterparts. This prejudice and discrimination adds an additional layer of risk on top of biological, social, environmental and psychological factors which can lead to depression and anxiety.
