Pride at Mind

Pride is a time to celebrate, protest and reflect. This year we’re sharing the experiences of young LGBTQIA+ people on social media. But our support for all LGBTQIA+ communities continues year round.

Coming to terms with our identities isn’t always easy. We know things can feel tough. We want you to know you’re not alone. That's why, this month, we're sharing stories from young LGBTQIA+ people on our social media.

We support all LGBTQIA+ communities. Not just during Pride. But all year round. We’re fighting to ban conversion therapy. If you’re finding things tough, we’re here for you.

“Don’t let anyone tell you there is a right or wrong way to come out. Everyone's experience is different. The right time is when you are ready. You are the one in control. Allow yourself to be proud of who you are. We are all in this together.”

Information on LGBTQIA+ mental health

If you’re LGBTIQ+, we have lots of information and tips to support you with your mental health. Being LGBTQIA+ does not cause mental health problems. But some things you may go through as an LGBTQIA+ person can make you more likely to experience a mental health problem. We’re here to help.

Banning conversion therapy for everyone

Conversion therapy is any attempt to change or 'cure' someone's sexual orientation or gender identity. It's an unethical and harmful practice that must be banned. LGBTQIA+ people don’t need to ‘cure’ their sexual orientation or gender identity.

‘Conversion therapy’ is not a therapy. It’s harmful and it’s putting people at risk of poor mental health. We’re calling on the UK Government to ban conversion therapy for everyone.

Follow us on social media

We’ll be talking about Pride on social media throughout June. Follow to learn more about LGBTQIA+ people’s mental health, and hear directly from people about their experiences.
