Supporting LGBTQ+ Communities with an Intersectional Lens

The SJLA Learning Series is for professionals of all levels who are dedicated to embracing social justice principles to bring equity to communities and systems of care.

Gender, race, ability, socioeconomic status and culture play huge roles in a person’s experience with the mental health and substance use care. In June, we’ll focus on the experiences of patients and providers within the LGBTQ+ communities.

Callen-Lorde Community Health Center will dive into the distinctive experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals based on their various identities and explore ways to address the health disparities within the LGBTQ+ communities. We will also highlight strategies to collect data and meet the unique needs of clients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define “gender” and “sexuality” through an intersectional lens.
  • Highlight specific health disparities for LGBTQ+ individuals.
  • Explore current strategies to address the unique needs of LGBTQ+ individuals.
