Why LBGTQ25+ Mental Health Research Matters: A Call for Urgency and Intersectionality.

Friday, November 30, 2018 - 12:00 - 13:30

The burden of mental illness is often disproportionately experienced by members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, emphasizing the urgent need to invest in research and programming for this very diverse population.  Supported by current mental health statistics among LGBTQ2S+ Canadians, potential contributors to mental illness among queer persons will be explored.  The case will be made for an investment in both research and services that acknowledges the intersectional complexity of addressing these issues.

 Peter Kellett Ph.D. RN is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of  Lethbridge.  His research interests include men’s health, transgender health, LGBTQ+ health, and the intersection of social hierarchies and health at a population level. He also runs the website Gender and Population Studies (GAPS) in Health (www.gapsinhealth.com, Twiter:@GAPSinHealth).   Peter Kellett is a Prentice Institute Research Affiliate.
