Understanding the Role of Resilience in Gender and Sexual Minority Communities

While it is well documented that gender and sexual minority individuals have faced lifelong stigma, discrimination, and other experiences that may lead to adverse psycho-social outcomes, an emerging program of research suggests resilience can be a buffer against the impact of these stressors.

This webinar by Mental Health America will highlight how public health approaches to health and well-being have historically been rooted in a deficits based model and the recent shift in focus to examine strengths-based perspectives in GSM communities, especially in older HIV+ gay men.

Join this free, 60-minute webinar to learn more about using a resiliency-based approach to health disparities and the strengths of the gender and sexual minority communities in coping with stigma and discrimination.

Mental Health America (MHA) is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all.
