You may be searching for information as you identify as LGBTIQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, non-binary, queer or questioning).

People who identify as LGBTIQ+ are more likely to experience mental health problems such as depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts. This is due to a number of reasons, which include experiencing stigma, discrimination, social isolation or exclusion/rejection. There is help and support available if you are experiencing these feelings.
